I am going to prove using my own experience that the phrase “Learning Disabled” is a poor description for those with learning problems. For most the phrase “Special Leaner” is much more appropriate.
Ten percent of the general population has what are presently termed severe learning disabilities. Many more possess lesser problems of this type. Numerous in the “Zoomer” (elderly) age group have never been diagnosed thusly and struggled with this difficulty. Yet many of these have been very successful.
Designed to be of comfort to those of you who have had learning problems, this manuscript outlines in detail my own particular experiences in life that were a major challenge. This is my method of commiserating and indicating that such problems need not be preemptive of a successful and rewarding life.
