I have a learning disability that I didn't know about until a few years ago and I'm 54. The problem is, we all think everyone else is like us, so we don't know if we have problems sometimes.
This is critical for teachers to learn to recognize problems. I think for the most part, they do better now than when I was in school.
I am slightly dyslexic and have a few other problems as well. It made school extremely difficult for me. My school years were the worst time of my life, yet I had a very successful military career and have excelled in everything I've put my mind to. It's just a matter of finding ways around the problems.
