Speak to your counselor and have them deal with the teachers. Don't give up. All of us learn things differently. It just doesn't show on the outside.
Most teachers are familiar with Aspergers. I'd suggest talking to them one on one and explaining what you're experiencing. A good teacher will be understanding and want to help.
I know what you mean. Like every though you know that you have to get your work done, you read one page and you start getting sleepy or spacing out. It's hard to deal with. You just have to find your method to keep you interested. Like I draw a little picture every time I start feeling tired. It helps me to stay focused, by not focusing completely.
If you have Microsoft work on your computer, do a one not for every teacher and if you have 6 teachers print 6 copies and give one to everyone.
Dear Professor Dullness,
I am writing to inform you that I have been tested for Asbergers disease. My family and I are waiting for the diagnosis at this moment.
You may have noticed that I have trouble focusing and completing assignments, and that is why. I'd like to ask for your forbearance during this time, and your assistance in any way you can. I do appreciate it.
Wow, I'm surprised to find someone with a similar situation.
I'm waiting for a diagnosis for Aspergers, and I'm finding it very hard to do my school work. Very difficult to manage with PTSD as well.
Here's a suggestion for you, NerdyOtaku. Take regular breaks when it gets too tough, amybe find someone to talk to with similar problems.
*Nods* I see! I for one find it easier to talk to strangers about personal stuff over the internet. Well, I get to know them a little first.
It was quite hard talking to a cousellor at first, too, but I find when I get going it's pretty easy!
I understand ur problem..Find out what interests you..sports or music or drama or science or maths or medicine or management..Try to speak within urself and decide wat u want to become. Academic is not just boring but interesting if you really fix a goal. Have a planner to write and try to see yourself wat u r gonna become after 2 years, 5 years and 10 years. ANd plan wat u r going to do to reach that place. This will really motivate u and help u to be more confident. Again try to hang out with friends who are really ambitious!
I am sorry for the stuggle. Many of us have mental/emotional challenges. I was unable to finish my HS due to depression, however as an adult, I graduated with Honors :)!
Regarding you dear, how about having a meetig with you and your parents and the teachers even the principal of the school?
Surely the school staff will trust in the word of your parents if they are dubious about your claims.
Is that a reasonable possibility?
My second suggestion was nullified as i read your details, I was going to say just present the DR's report and that should mollify them.
Best of luck to you.
Remember you can do what you set your sights on!
EVERYBODY struggles getting through things they find boring. Having a label to excuse you does not help your personal development.
It's about self discipline. Make a start then have a break if you feel you need it, but then go back to it and make sure you stick at it to get a bit more done etc.. Eventually you get through it.
Set yourself targets and promise yourself a small treat when you reach them. If you never do it, you'll never have the confidence that you CAN do it. Just stop making excuses for yourself and set to it.
So finding school work boring is a illness now?
Let me rephrase... So if someone can't focus on things they find boring, they may well have a condition known as aspergers? I think I've got it too
And where was I judgemental?
She already thought she had Aspergers. It was a seperate thing, however worrying about it seems to be affecting her studying. She doesn't think that just because she finds work boring it affects her studying.
I mean. Just becaus she finds work boring it means she has aspergers. Silly me.
