Differences in definitions can cause problems

For example in the UK learning disability is a term used for children with IQs under 70. Those with ok general IQ but areas of learning problems have learning difficulties.
In the UK things like dyslexia,dyscalculia are seen as learning difficulties but in the US as learning disabilities.
In the US one can be gifted but learning disabled but in the UK not.
