A comparative analysis of specific learning disability and mental retardation.
Socio-cultural dynamics influence care pathways in children with developmental disorder

Children with specific learning disability share similar barriers in care pathways as those with mental retardation. Socio- cultural dynamics play a role in seeking help. The role of teachers, neighbours, guardians of other children and relatives is significant as they refer maximum children in both groups to the right care.

Un Análisis comparativo del Trastorno Específico de Aprendizaje y el Retardo Mental
La dinámica sociocultural influye en las vías de atención de los niños con trastorno del desarrollo

Los niños con trastorno específico del aprendizaje comparten obstáculos similares en las vías de atención que aquellos con retardo mental. La dinámica sociocultural cumple un papel en la búsqueda de atención. El papel de los maestros, vecinos, tutores de otros niños y familiares es significativo ya que derivan al máximo número de niños en ambos grupos hacia la atención adecuada.
