Learning differences

Learning Differences

Because I am twice exceptional, being both LD/ADD and gifted, I have a great interest in learning differences. Some of thse include learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and sensory processing disorders. You can read my story in adobe acrobat format. You may also want to read the paper I wrote, Twice Exceptional: Learning Disabled and Gifted.

If you do not have SLDs or ADHD and want a taste of what it is like, please visit Misunderstood Minds from PBS.
