Learning Disabilities

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I’m going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don’t look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

AUTISM

1927709_10100147984220867_2237255674767893587_n

Autism Speaks defines Autism as:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome.

I was at a store the other day and they were asking for dollar donations to find a “cure” for Autism. Hm… So what you should know is that Autism is not a disease, it was a way the brain develops. No one needs to be cured. I’m sure this store has all the best intentions in the world and I applaud their efforts. Yes, they need to be extra supported, listened to, and accommodated at times.  But Autistic kids don’t need to be cured.

Whatever you think you know about what a person on the spectrum can or can’t do, is probably incorrect. That is why “spectrum” is the perfect descriptive word.

I know this from experience, because personally someone on the spectrum has..

Drained jump shots in my face

Beat me in Chess

Taught me to make french toast

Made me cry from watching them sing on stage.

Taught me how to whip and nae nae

Encouraged me to keep running while we are out jogging

Thrown water balloons at me from an upstairs window

Beat me in Wii dance

Reminded me of my exact promise I stated two weeks ago

Worried about my kids when they are sick

Brought me flowers when I came back from maternity leave

Laughed at me when I fell over a bench playing ultimate frisbee

Taught me a level of patience, humility, and compassion that I did not have prior to knowing this community.

If you have seen one Autistic kid, you have seen one Autistic kid.

Every one is different and that’s okay.

ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder of children. Kids with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable control their impulses. Or they may have trouble paying attention. These behaviors interfere with school and home life.

It’s more common in boys than in girls. It’s usually discovered during the early school years, when a child begins to have problems paying attention.

Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized, setting goals, and holding down a job. They may also have problems with relationships self-esteem, and addiction.

Tufts Health insurance does not cover testing for ADHD. As they do not see it is “medically necessary.” Now I don’t know if they just don’t want anything to do with it because people are always trying to get controlled meds and abuse them. Sell them. Which sucks. But man I need to bring Tufts health reps to work with me one day and be like “okay if by the end of the day you can tell me ADHD testing is not medically necessary.” Good luck with that.

Is it over diagnosed? Probably. But I don’t have the criteria for my opinion to matter on that one.

All drugs aside, if you feel like your brain or your child’s brain is ADHD here are my little TIPS you really should be focusing on:

EXERCISE EXERCISE EXERCISE:

Best case scenario you get your ADHD kid into sports. Let them try everything. Soccer, Basketball, Running, Golf, Gymnastics, Dance, Cheerleading. Whatever they are interested in. Get involved. Get them excited. BURN OFF THEIR ENERGY. Get them hyper focused on working out. It will help improve mood and help them go to sleep at night.

SLEEP!!

Turning your brain off at the end of the day may be very hard. Make a night time routine. Force yourself to go to bed. Consistent sleep patterns will save your kids life. Have them hand in the electronics to you at 9 PM. Then make them go to their room. They don’t even have to go to sleep, but they have to follow a routine that signals their brain that it’s time to calm down.

Don’t FALL asleep watching TV!

If your kid is telling you he needs the TV to fall asleep. Say no. Instead have him listen to music with head phones while laying in bed. TV is too stimulating. He will stay up too late continuing to watch, only falling asleep when he is completely exhausted.

Instead, listen to pandora stations. It makes your mind stop running with your own thoughts. But your eyes are closed and it’s dark. Works like a charm.

They even have podcasts now that some guy tells very boring stories. You listen to it, and it works so well, I tried it!

Schedules 

Consistency will save your life. Daily schedules decrease anxiety of what is going to happen. Sets your kid up for success.

“That does suck honey, but still NO.”

Show your kid some support and understanding as he is facing challenges. Don’t dismiss it. But, still make them do it themselves. Figure it out for themselves. Don’t let them use their learning disability as a crutch. Don’t do things for them.

Basically, don’t let them off the hook. “Well, you know, Michael has ADHD so he can’t control himself.” Wrong.

“It is MUCH harder for Michael to control himself. It has been so challenging for us to work on ways for him to calm down.”

I only say this because on a daily basis for five years I have seen students with learning disabilities be given tasks that their parents swore they “couldn’t do” and I watched them rise to the occasion.

Sometimes we handicap the people we love most.  It is most definitely a delicate balance.

Wow, that got deep fast.

 

Always ask for help!

Reach out to people. Seek counseling. Read books. Utilize services. Enlist the help of an advocate if you are feeling overwhelmed. No one is ever alone.

 

 

But who am I to tell you what to do? Just some friendly suggestions and information.

  90. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

    be at the internet the simplest factor to keep in mind of.

    Thankyou!

    1. Britt Author

      Just rip off the band aid. Just do it. Start small. See if it fits organically into your weekly life. It can’t be a chore. I’m still relatively new to blogging. I haven’t even been blogging a year. So I’m always learning and figuring out ways to make things better. It will always be a work in progress. Thanks for reading along.

  112. Thanks for some other informative web site. Where else may I get
    that type of information written in such an ideal way?
    I have a mission that I am simply now operating
    on, and I have been on the glance out for such info.

  113. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  114. I know this site gives quality based posts and additional
    information, is there any other web page which presents

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  117. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding
    this.

  118. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, great blog!

  119. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Kudos!

  120. Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
    any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get suggestions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

  121. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    Thank you

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a
    year and am concerned about switching to aanother platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    1. Britt Author

      I use wordpress. I have very little coding experience. I am currently reading and learning as much as I can. It has been a slow process. But I didn’t feel like it was hard to get started without any experience. You will just need to keep learning and continue to improve your site. I am fortunate enough to have a friend who has helped me with a lot of the actual site set up. Good luck

  142. I believe everything posted was actually very
    logical. However, what about this? suppose you
    added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid, but what if
    you added a title that makes people want more? I mean Learning Disabilities |
    Somebodys Mother is kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and
    watch how they write news headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    1. Britt Author

      Thank you! I honestly appreciate this constructive criticism. I have been working so hard to improve my site! I’m in the process of transforming what started as my own little project to something more. I am learning so much every day. Videos are in progress right now! Stay tuned.

    job and our whole community will be grateful

  144. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help
    reduce content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Britt Author

      This is a topic I am very interested in as well. Considering I am currently the only author of my entire web site. I’ve been researching this topic recently. I’ll let you know if I find anything worth sharing!

  145. Can I simply just say what a relief to discover someone who truly knows what they are talking about on the net.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
