The Opposite Disability...

Anonymous

I am classed as 'disabled' due to a learning 'disability'. It's not really a disability. I learn too easily, I absorb too well and in elementary school I felt too far ahead of the other students. Because of the 'disabled' word hanging over my head, I was then put into the special needs unit, which was 10x worse, because I wasn't slow, I was too fast but a bit socially awkward.

I hated school. Always feeling like I had to hold myself back so the teachers could cope. No one helped me with my 'opposite disability'. The slower kids were helped, I wasn't.

So as a parent, if this was happening to your child, what would you do?

Homeschool or private school. And I did. My kids attend a private school and my dd will likely skip a grade next year.

Bullshit on what? The fact that life isn't perfect and that people get disrespected even when they are doing the right thing?

No, on the fact that the OP is full of shit. If she was smart like she claims, she would have been labled as gifted. Not places with disabled ppl.

'Gifted' is classed as disabled. Most people who are gifted have a multitude of mental disabilities.

Ok, they may have other issues, but they are still considered intellectually gifted and not placed with retartds and disabled kids.
