The use of Groups works fine when you are looking for the latest posts. Internet Forums, previously referred to as message boards, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.

These messages, arranged by Topics / Threads allow for directed discussions on specific items or support along with the ability to post, reply, comment to enhance the Forum discussion

Forums have a fundamental difference with chat rooms in that messages are logically grouped, can be moderated, longer than one line of text, and are grouped into threads so are accessible for years as easy reference material.

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin.

It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.

Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.

Definitions of learning disability and learning difficulties Language is changing all the time. The words we use to describe a particular impairment or disability change as a result of  listening to people with personal experience and as a result of changing values and attitudes in society. In addition, the same words can have different meanings in different countries.

Although we share a common language with countries such as America and Australia the words we use to describe particular disabilities related to learning are different.

People can often find the term ‘learning disability’ confusing because there are several different explanations about what a learning disability is. Learning disability and learning difficulties are terms that are commonly used in the UK. These two terms are often interchangeable when used in the context of health and social care for adults. Some people with learning disabilities prefer the term learning difficulties.

There are several definitions of learning disability used in the UK. A commonly used one is from Valuing People: a new strategy for learning disability for the 21st century, the government White Paper for England about health and social care support for people with a learning disability (2001). It explains that a learning disability includes the presence of:

  • a significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information or to learn new skills; MM a reduced ability to cope independently;
  • an impairment that started before adulthood, with a lasting effect on development.
