This is what we're trying to teach my grandkids, and have explained to
the teacher and staff at her school that there may be days when she
should be praised simply for coming to school, whether she manages to
do any work while she's there or not. Not everyday of course, but so
that she can gain self-confidence and not feel like a failure.

I'm currently in therapy trying to overcome a lifetime of feeling like my
failures were acknowledged much more often than my successes. I'd
like for my grandkids to have a better basis for self-confidence and good
self-esteem than I had.

Dyslexia is considered to be a Language-based processing disorder but not a LD (only to reading/writting) which is not a representation of IQ/intelligences.

I am SCT and I have to tell you although I see the words perfectly..within 20 sec of reading I have no clue what I read or even miss something important.

I would say that you have a learning disorder instead.
not me. I was never diagnosed as having dyslexia. I just can't type

Re: Adhd/learning disability?

People generally don't care about those with developmental disabilities. Attitudes need to change

Depends how you define "learning disability".

LDs (including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia) and dyspraxia and processing problems are very common among people with ADHD. Still, not everyone with ADHD has deficits in these areas (and some people with deficits in these areas might not be classified as having LDs).

Some people lump ADHD in with learning disabilities altogether, and consider ADHD itself to be a type of LD. But the way the US educational and medical systems have historically handled things, they have often been viewed as separate sorts of issues to be handled in different ways (even if there's some overlap or similarity, and research suggests some common areas of difficulty).
