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?
