Unidentified minor Learning disabilities, DO WE ALL HAVE IT?

Do we all have some form of learning disability? 

Leave aside the extreme cases but just partly, as children most are distracted it is given to being a kid and not ADHD.

I still find it tough when two letters are swapped in a word or one alphabet is missing. Most of us can decipher the word as long as the first and the last letters are in place. is this dyslexic?

Are these disabilities? Answer is a clear NO, but do they need to be identified and helped to overcome it? Have you noticed any in your case?

Parents
  • May I suggest you take this online test (http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles-quiz.shtml) to determine what type of learner you are? We recently had our grandson  who is spending the remainder of the summer with us take the test. We were surprised to learn that he is primarily an auditory learner. We are going to find out if his textbooks this next school year are available as etextbooks or audiobooks. If not, we are going to invest in software that will convert text to speech for him.

  • The part I am not sure about in these tests are they make you one type fully which is not true. It may be your dominant type but not your only type. Simple case when you dont have an audio book is to read it out to your self. i.e. read the text out loud. That doesn't make you a Reading type but helps auditory learners.
