Example text

I couldn’t understand why my parents made me go somewhere that made me feel stupid and unhappy. Less than a year later I am very studious and love to learn. I try hard on my college assignments and read loads. I work hard and try to be polite. It seems that school should have been the perfect environment for me, yet it wasn’t. Charlotte, 16 How many of you really enjoy going to school? Most kids are bored halfway to madness in some lessons and don’t get on with certain teachers, but for teenagers with learning differences this mild dislike can congeal into a mixture of hatred and dread.

Repeat problems and equations that you know how to do again and again like a cow chewing cud. Incredibly boring, I know, but it does cement things in your head. If you’re having a bad day and your short-term memory is fuzzy, routines come to the rescue. e. the order of operations: Brackets, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction) so you have something to refer to if your memory fades out. A chart explaining what all the different symbols mean is also useful. • Buy a bigger compass. If you have a larger surface area to grip you are less likely to stab yourself with the business end.

My sense of smell skyrockets but my vision goes weird: all I can see is a muddle of faces that won’t be decoded. The lesson after this onslaught is English, and even though I love that subject I can never concentrate and I jump at the slightest disturbance. My co-ordination and handwriting seem to get worse too. It’s like having a loud and discordant brass band crashing around between your ears. Sensory integrative dysfunction isn’t easy to cope with but I am grateful to it for some things. We pick up on things that others don’t, and are able to see ordinary things in startling ways.
