I've long suspected I have some form of dyslexia, I loved to read growing up but I always had a hard time with anything I wasn't deeply interested in reading. i struggled through all of it, but books that got my attention kept me engaged enough to push through the issues to where most teachers thought I was fine.
yeah it seems our brains work more efficiently with subjects that interest us.as for the others, there's a struggle to assimilate and 'digest' the information and by the time we're close enough to grasp we're already tired and very depressed. Atleast in my case this was a constant battle. But then going through some interesting story book with maybe pop art,it becomes a different world altogether, I can process,assimilate anything much faster.
No clue how autism works or its impairments though, since i wasn't diagnosed nor know anyone who is.
