Neither one. Learning disabilities aren't developmental disabilities. They also are not neurological, the way Autism is. There are many people who actually question the validity of learning disabilities as a medical diagnosis, in fact.

It's normally a neurological issue. People with learning disabilities can be very intelligent.
An intellectual disability is another condition, such as Down Syndrome or other disorder that means the person has a lower than average intelligence.
