A learning disability can be both costly and difficult emotionally to deal with for the parents, teachers, and professionals and, of course, the individuals who have them. Treatment for learning disabilities, special education resources such as tutors or private schooling, and not being able to hold down a job during adulthood are all specific issues that can cost both emotional strain and massive financial costs. One of the resources for children and adults with disability is the application for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits to aid with the financial costs of a life with learning disabilities, as well as access to resources that can help. Understanding what disability benefits can do for a person with learning disabilities and how one can apply/request those benefits are key points toward finding and keeping the help needed for a life with learning disabilities.
