“A learning disability is where people take a long time to learn. It used to be confused with educational learning but we now know it is about learning social skills, learning communication skills it’s about how to behave and relate to other people and so people with learning difficulties find it difficult to adapt to situations that you and I find easy to adapt to”
Dr. Walter Owino, Consultant Psychiatrist (Medical Director)
