Comorbid: Dyslexia et al — ADD Tip o the day 261

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.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
