good searching 05 Feb 2008 13:33 #13348

thanks Mandy, I looked and looked but haven't mastered the search tools I guess so we can now continue the discussion if anybody else is interested but I feel silly repeating things I have said here (Was I embarrassed reading some of my earlier entries, bad spelling bad grammar bad memory boy am I glad my high school English teacher is not a quilter so she won't be rrreading any of this soon but can you retroactively be flunked out of school? if so, I am in huge trouble. oh well whatever I will go on as always

Thanks, Jan! My background has determined my choice of 'perfect job'. There is nothing more rewarding than working with children (11 to 16 in my case) who have any number and range of special educational needs - if you have the patience and an overall positive attitude.

I should be more specific - It was under Topic - Chat and the subject title was Chat room shorthand or sorthand and it was the second page of that subject.

Oh, Lorchen...you make me stand up from my chair, pump fist in the air, and yell "YESSSSSS....Way to go, girl". I LOVE someone with your determination! You showed them, didn't you. Think of how many young ones with the same challenges just climbed within themselves, feeling "less than". :cry: Sigh. Thank you for caring and sharing. :D

I remember this conversation as well because I was talking about my own problems with disgraphsia, which is a form of dyslexia where handwriting and spelling is affected. Since then I have been noticing my oldest daughter (2nd grader) is now also showing some signs of it - her spelling on tests is fine but not matter how carefully she writes her handwriting is almost illegible and her general spelling on assignments is interesting to say the least. I'll have to look back and see if I can find those posts.

Jean, dyscalculus is just as common as dyslexia. I work with special needs children in a mainstream school, and it always amazes me how talented children with either of the above are in other areas.

I'm quite severely dyslexic, but the term didn't exist when I went to school, so I just got the label 'can't be bothered', 'is a lazy writer', etc., and had to find my own strategies to cope with it. Because there was no awareness of dyslexia, nobody stopped me, and I became a linguist with a double degree in languages and literature. :)

Hi Ann
I love to read what you write, but anyway I have trouble not with words but with numbers I write them all mixed up but how I control it is if there is a # 237698 I don't say or think 2, 3, 7,
I do it 23, 76, 98, twenty three, seventy six, ninety eight, if I think of them individually I get confused and that was not good for a Quality Control inspector so I had to figure something out that would work and work well and this worked for me. I hope this will help other people with this problem.....Jean

LEARNING DISABILITIES, ADD, ETC AND QUILTING 04 Feb 2008 23:02 #13292

Recently there were a couple of entries that seemed to get lost in the discussion of more physical disabilities and that was dyslexia and the related learning disabilities that affect many of us so I am starting this thread to give us a place to talk about those issues and not take away from the issues of pain and physical problems that affect quilting. Both are important -- I deal with both in my life so need a way to think about each one in its own light and how I deal with it.

so to Lucy van pelt and Happy and others who like me struggle with this here is our chance

and if any of you can remember where we discussed this a few months ago please post it here so I can quit reading the forum to find it and actually do some quilting
