Re: i think i might have a learning problem

It doesn't sound like an actual "disorder", to me. Considering you have average grades and seemingly, you do well otherwise. I'd also have to suggest a tutor. Your reading (having to read something over a number of times) could have to do with either comprhension or cencentration. Either one can be overcome with extra studying, organization and practice.

My nephew was tested before 9th grade for ADD. He tested positive for ADD but also had a high aptitude for Science. he just could not concentrate!
he started on meds and it changed his life!! he does not take them if he is not in school.
My niece--his sister, did not get diagnosed until college!!! Don't wait to get tested and be sure your parents go to someone reliable!
ADD runs in families. I can always tell when my nephew is not on his meds. he just seems to be in an alternate reality not able to focus on on anything more than a few mins.

or perhaps you need to go to a reading center. There are other issues conneccted to Senory Integration Disorder that inhibit your ability to understand the words and what they mean. It has nothing to do with IQ!!

If she has difficulty with comprehension, then she should be getting assistance. A lot of people need to be taught how to look for important information, to have it "broken down," and simplified, and need tools to help them retain it.

I teach a variety of kids...and good grades don't mean that they don't have difficulty. Most of my kids are in some Integrated classrooms, and others in full Special Ed. classrooms, and others in full General Ed. for academics. Personally, on my caseload, I have at least 3 students who are Special Ed. for Learning Disabilities (comprehension, word processing) who are in all Gen Ed classes, and they struggle, but work their asses off to pull A's and B's.


Jemma, if you are having difficulty learning, you need to contact your school counselor, and if (s)he and other teachers have also noticed a problem, there are ways to get you help. You are entitled for assistance, whether that be accessing help at school, or being tested for a learning disability. (For the latter, your parents will have to be notified and consent to testing, which will likely be done by the school psychologist. From there, you will have a meeting with Special Ed. personnell at your school.)

Good luck...
