Re: Do you have a Learning Disability? - February 19th 2012, 03:44 AM

I've always had problems with math too, ever since I was young. I could never understand why I couldn't just get it right away like everyone else did. I also use my fingers to count when doing simple math like addition and subtraction - if I don't, I just feel like I get lost in the numbers. And when it came to solving problems I always had the hardest time trying to answer them. Somehow I made it all the way through high school and didn't do too bad! I never really thought of it as a learning disability, though I guess technically it would be considered one. The way I got through it was, like a couple people already said, by taking advantage of the resources available to me. Extra help, tutors, any extra time given to finish exams etc. When it comes down to it, and you work hard enough, you can do anything you put your mind to.

Rescue is possible. Love is the movement ♥
