Thread: AB/DL-ism and Learning Difficulties

  1. #1

    Default AB/DL-ism and Learning Difficulties

    Hey so I was just wondering if these was a correlation between having some form of of learning difficultly and being AB/DL. Not that I'm saying AB/DL-ism is caused by learning difficulties, I'm just interested to see if there is a link between the two.

    So yeah, if you don't mind sharing what (if any) learning difficulties you have, and any thoughts you have on this topic, it'd be really interesting

    (I, myself am predominently Dyspraxic, with elements of Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and ADD.)

    I have been told that I should be checked for auditory processing difficulties. Part of the time, when someone is speaking to me, all I hear is noise, not words. Not sure if it counts.

    Well, on behalf of the often-overlooked and left out SPD community, thank you very much for including us, lol!

    I have a diagnosis of SPD, Dyspraxia (related) and Learning Disabled-Not Otherwise Specified (LD-NOS). I probably also have Asperger's Syndrome/Autism Spectrum Disorder and OCD. I am also very sure that I have Depersonalization Disorder and Major Depression. I hope to get diagnoses for those when I can afford to get evaluated. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised to pick up a handful of other diagnoses, as there's a lot 'going on' in my head, hehe.

    To Kalis: Yes, I would say that counts. It sounds like it could either be related to SPD or CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder).

    Good thread here. As for whether or not there's a connection, I'd say that there's more of a correlation (heightened odds, but not causal). The article I wrote on this site sums up my thoughts on the matter, for the most part.

    I don't know that it is/was a learning difficulty or just a quirk, but I didn't talk until I was nearly 4. My parents took me to specialists, who apparently felt comfortable that my brain was working but I just didn't feel like saying anything. They put me in an early learning program for young special needs children. Eventually, I started talking. I don't really remember much of that period at all, but my parents have told me about it. The only thing I kinda vaguely remember was one day at the Learning Center when suddenly the teachers got really really excited by something about me. I don't know if that was the first time I spoke, or if I'd done something bad, or some other thing.

    Mind that all of that was in the early 1980s. Now, who knows, maybe I would have been diagnosed with some flavor of autism or some other thing. Back then, apparently they knew I had a working brain and they figured I'd talk when I decided I had something interesting to say.

    Although never officially diagnosed, I've always suspected myself of having a learning disorder. I'm horrible at reading, but I can read words just fine, I typically just get lost while reading at times and find myself reading lines over again. It takes me longer than the average person to read books. I often think I am bipolar. Taking an online test to confirm my suspicions came out positive and to seek advice.
    I think it started when I had fell on my head as a kid (around 6 or 7 yrs old). A dog jumped on me and my head hit the corner of a concrete slab.

    Prior to this I was a great student at school. I lost the interest I I've had as my mind drifted very often to other things. I've never mentioned this as a problem to anyone before, but now that I look back I can see where things changed in life.

    As it being why I'm an ab/dl? I'm not positive of that at all because I remember being caught as a 3 or 4 year old wearing one of my sister's diapers. I've always have had an attraction to diapers ever since I can remember.

    I can't afford going to be diagnosed for my mental disorders. Everything is super expensive. I've heard about adderall and I believe if I had that going through school I would be better off today.

    Spddan, I've often wondered if I would have been diagnosed with something if I were young now, or if I hadn't hidden my difficulties in school. The "you can't have learning difficulties if you're still making As" thing. As for my hearing, since audiometry didn't show an actual hearing deficit, and it isnt an always problem, my family just typically yelled at me fornot listening/not paying attention. Lol, probably why I tend to work jobs alone, or in places where I can justify asking someone to repeat themselves. Problem solving at its finest.

    I have been diagnosed with Asperger's, OCD, Dyspraxia, sensory processing disorder, and ADD. I suspected I have a learning disorder NOS but I have been told its because of my Asperger's. My mother told me I outgrew sensory processing disorder and dyspraxia.

    I blame a lot of the problems I had was being in back of the class and not having good eye sight.

    I was diagnosed with aspergers but fortunately it's pretty mild. I don't really connect with people but I can hold a conversation.
