Since I Was Born

My father has a learning disability. When i was in 2nd i think they notice i was keeping up with the rest of the class. I guess the tested me. Since i was in 3rd-12th grade I've been in IEP classes.  I can't spell that good, i have trouble learning things, like math etc. I think I'm dumb stupid etc cause i have a learning disability.

thanks every1 :)

sweetie, just cuz you have a learning disability does NOT mean that you are dumb! <br />
some of the most intelligent people in the world have had to deal with disabilities. <br />
You just need to find ways to learn that are different from how most people learn. My daughter has a form of dyslexia, that made it really hard for her to learn to read, and she had a speech problem as well, and we were lucky enough to have a teacher that helped her with both of them over a 2 or 3 year period, and she is doing quite well in college now, using the skills she learned from that dear teacher who took the time to make a difference! <br />
<br />
Also, I have to say, I care far more about what kind of heart my child has than how "smart" she is! 8-)

And yet, you have better spelling, and better apostrophe use than a lot of other people!! :) I'd say you're not so dumb after all. :)
