What Causes Learning Disabilities?

6 of 7

5. Exposure to Knowledge

During the first five years of life, a child has the heightened ability to soak up knowledge. A toddler exposed to piano playing can develop talents for music. Exposure to books, quality conversation and new experiences during these critical years can open up a child's mind for further growth. Likewise, children deprived of conversation, books and varied experiences may lack the seeds needed for future learning to sprout.
