Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

So grateful to read this. Kudos to Andi....Important info for teachers and parents!

This brought tears to my eyes. Many decades too late for me now...but would like to send it to my siblings, parents and former teachers. Sadly...bullying starts at home.

Sincerely; 4ever4

Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

Thank you for that post it was like taking the trip down memory lane, it's such a two-edged sword for me when I read that information, because you don't want to admit it you want to forget it, but every time you turn around there is! I thought it was absolutely amazing that at the age of 53 I found out why I can't do math because of dyslexia! Someone finally took the time to sit down with me and she was a professional and she immediately recognized it. And it's amazing how it does intensify and get worse with age.

Aloha

Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

My new pet peeve is not being able to quickly read the twitter comments on the bottom of the TV screen, during a show. I'll read halfway through a sentence, and the blurb has already disappeared from the screen. Also while trying to read the twitter comments, I get anxiety knowing I'm not reading at a quick enough speed. Has any one else had this happen to them?

Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

Wow, Andi thank you for posting this.

I'm diagnosed ADD with a mild LD (visual-spatial). This whole article resonates with me so much. I wish someone could have told me all of these things when I was diagnosed in 5th grade.

Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

Thank you, very interesting article. What percent of people with ADHD have learning disabilities and how is it impeding their studies and professional life? Is there any methods to help them improve their focus on reading/listening?

Re: A MUST READ!!! Top Five Emotional Difficulties of Adults with LD

Learning disabilities doesn't mean you can't or don't learn and make good grades. It means every good grade or everything learned is hard fought for and depends on whether you can manage the herculean tasks you've set before you at that particular time of your life. I fought for all my good grades...more than another person without such conditions. So if you can, fight your own battle and when you win, congratulate yourself, because you deserve it more than most would!
