Learning Disabilities Treatment Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global learning disabilities treatment market was valued at ~US$ 3 Bn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. Learning disability can be defined as significant reduction in the ability to understand complex or new information; difficulty in learning new skills, and a reduced ability to cope independently. Various aspects in which individuals with learning disabilities face problems include learning new things, managing money, learning, reading, and writing. The modes of treatment available for various forms of learning disabilities include therapies, assistive technology tools, and handwriting training tools. The growth of the global learning disabilities treatment market can be attributed to annual increase in number of students requiring special education.
According to the Department of Education report, in the U.S., the number of students aged 3 years to 21 years receiving special education services increased from 6.6 million in 2015 to 6.7 million in 2017. Among them, over 34% of the students had learning disabilities, of which over 20% of them had speech or language impairments.
North America dominated the global learning disabilities treatment market in 2018 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. The strong growth of the market in the region can be attributed to the availability of technologically advanced products, changing government regulations, and rise in prevalence of learning disabilities among people. In addition, growing awareness among people and increase in student enrollment for special education aid in the growth of the market in the region.
Government Initiatives to Enhance Focus on Learning Disabilities
Governments have been taking various initiatives to enhance the lives of the people suffering from learning disabilities. For instance, the Government of England and NHS are focused on reducing health inequalities for people with learning disabilities and have established various national programs to enhance the treatments and outcomes. Furthermore, recently the NHS Long Term Plan recognized learning disabilities and autism as clinical priority areas. These government initiatives are expected to aid in creating awareness about learning disabilities, which, in turn, is likely to boost the growth of the market.

Growing awareness of learning disabilities among people contributes to the early diagnosis of the disease, aiding in the growth of the treatment market. The effective treatment modes for dyslexia include academic therapy, audiobooks, and usage of text reading and word processing computer programs.
Therapy to be Most Common Treatment
