I was watching the news last night and there was a lady speaking about her child. She said her child was special. I have always thought that any child can develop special skills if they have support.
There are only a few that have developed this skills and it would be so nice if the rest could catch up. When I learned that I had problems in school it was very depressing. I grew up wanting to get out of that hole.
It’s not easy when all of your teachers think that you are retarded instead of knowing that there are different ways to learn. I had to be very patient with myself, because reading things and not being able to remember what I read was awful.
I learned as the years went by that I needed to look at life different. I didn’t think of myself as retarded, but as a person that couldn’t remember things even after I read them. I learned English when I was in the 4rth grade. My English is not perfect, but I understand everything I read now.
It’s true that my grammar is not perfect, but I work around everything that I can to get my message across. Maybe this is what makes me different from a lot of people out there. I decided that just because I have a learning disability this is not a failure. For me this is a rock that I push away when I want to keep walking.
I hope that there will be some type of help for the new generation. I heard that I’m not the only person in the world with a learning problem. It’s not what the problem can do, but how the problem is dealt with. Thank goodness for public libraries, because without them my tries of learning would not have been achieved.
Thanks for reading my work. :-)
