Going through school as a student with ADD / ADHD or a learning disability can be more of a struggle than a lot of people can really wrap their heads around. For these students, traditional school and teaching methods might not be as effective, and even though the smarts are there, the process in which they’re trying to process the information is not totally compatible with their brains.
And the funny thing is, is that students with ADD/ ADHD and/or learning disabilities aren’t really outliers in the education system. Around 4% of all students have learning disabilities and approximately 3-5% have ADD / ADHD. There is obviously some overlap there, but that means that in a classroom of 24-30 students, at least one will have ADD / ADHD.
What you and everybody needs to know is that having a learning disability or ADD / ADHD does not make a person stupid. Their brains just work differently.
So even if you’ve struggled with traditional school, there are higher education options out there in form of scholarships (yay!!!) and resources (woo hoo!!!).
You are not alone, and here are some links to prove it:
