33 - Learning disability

5 posts in this topic

A subcultural explaination rather than a biological one in learning disabilities is most accounted for by:

1. An even spread of LD across different socio-economic groups of the population.

2. Moderate LD

3. LD in other members of the family

4. Facial dysmorphologies

5. problems with adaptive functioning

i think the naswer sud be : 5
