Re: do i have a learning disability?
It could in fact be a learning disability. What is sounds like to me though, is something called Auditory Processing Disorder. People with APD actually have normal hearing and intelligence, but have trouble paying attention to and remembering information presented orally, problems carrying out multistep directions, poor listening skills, need more time to process information and have low academic performance. As well, people with Audtiory Processing Disorder have difficulty with reading, comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary. I am not sure if you are dealing with APD, ADD or a learning disorder, but it might be of benefit to you to see a specialist. They can tell you what may be going on, and ways to help you with difficulties.
