What is a learning disability?

People who have a learning disability struggle with everyday life that others take for granted, for example doing household tasks, socialising or managing money. They often need support to deal with things and to interact with other people. 

Kingston Mencap is affiliated to the Royal Mencap Society - the leading charity for people with learning disabilities. The charity was established in 1952.
