Many of the individuals who suffer from ADHD also suffer from Learning Difficulties. However, an Attention Disorder is not a learning difficulty.
The neurological expressions of an Attention Disorder are low-frequency brainwaves. The brain cannot maintain attention and concentration for long periods of time, when it is unable to synchronies the high-frequency brainwaves necessary for this task. If the brain is not taught to control the various brainwaves, one cannot expect an improvement in attention and concentration.
An individual who functions on low-frequency brainwaves makes a much greater effort in learning. It is several times the effort experienced by an individual who functions on high-frequency brainwaves. This huge effort takes an emotional toll, as well.
