ADD ADHD and dyslexia run together
I’ve just finished reading a very interesting book on dyslexia.
The author, a prize winning poet!, talks extensively about his life long experience with dyslexia. It is heart rending. but when I read it, so much of it is familiar – he never mentions ADD ADHD, but I wonder if he has both. We know that they often run together.
Or could it just be that the long-term consequences of both– shame, depression, lack of confidence, etc. -are so similar?
Both ADD ADHD and dyslexia have demonstrated brain “abnormalities”, but not the same ones.
Questions of the day:
1. Do you have dyslexia too?
2. What do you make of all this?
The book would be educational reading for anyone who wonders what it is like living with ADD ADHD.
Whine O the Day:
As if ADD ADHD weren’t enough.
