With ADD or ADHD we are more likely to have learning problems – dyslexia, dyscalcula, dysgraphia. I have a touch of each. These are not actually part of ADD or ADHD, they just seem to frequently travel together.
I read well but retain little unless i make a special effort, for example, stop frequently and ask myself what I just read. In college, i could sometimes figure out the complex formula but then miss the problem because of a simple addition error, learned to always check my math. I have trouble dialing a phone correctly or recording a phone number. Anything that requires entering a long string of numbers gives me a lot of grief, always need to check to see if got it right. And my handwriting , oh my, but amazingly improved when i learned to slow down and to pay attention to each letter, especially l’s , e’s and r’s.
so there are strategies for each of these problems. there are also coaches especially trained in reading problems.
