learning disabilty?? - March 1st 2015, 10:08 PM

is it likely I have a learning disability like dyslexia.. I've look symptoms up and they don't all agree, but want to see what people think.. So basically my spelling is pretty bad (it took me a while to spell this message), I can't and never have been able to read an ordinary clock, I have no sense of direction nor can I read maps, I struggle to tell my left from right, and am terrible at readinng aloud.. Is this signs of disability or is it ordinary I haven't been told I have a problem but its becoming more noticable.. Any advice would be useful

I can do it and I can get through it. So can you xx

Hi, welcome to TeenHelp!
From what I know about learning disabilities, this sounds like it could be a learning disability. I cannot tell you which one though because this could be a number of disabilities and the best way to find out would be to ask your parents or see what services your school offers in terms of psychological testing.
Your school should offer testing for students to see if they have disabilities related to learning and then once the testing is complete and it is found you have a learning disability, you should be able to receive support services that will help you through your education (i.e.. software that makes text easier to read, software that reads to you (text-to-speech), combinations of software that will make reading and writing easier).
These things were probably not recognized when you were younger because while you had challenges, you probably were able to adapt to them and found ways to cope without even knowing it. However, now that you are getting in to more complex learning tasks and are being asked to complete more suffistocated reading tasks and writing assignments, you probably are struggling more.
Hopefully all of this makes sense and that your school has services that can help.
Take care and keep us updated.
