SAALEDWelcome to SAALED
A learning difficulty is a condition that can cause an individual to experience problems in a traditional classroom learning context. It may interfere with literacy skills development and mathematics and can also affect memory, ability to focus and organisational skills. SAALED is the leading Southern African organisation concerned with the field of special educational needs.
