1st-person LD

Posted Dec 22 2005 12:00am

In a first-person article, Mary Kobes of NJ (US) relates her experiences about learning to read print and music. It’s a disarmingly unassuming article, a perspective that many of may miss.

I remember I learned to read, when I was7 years old and in the 2nd grade. It was a long road ahead for me. There were many experiences and obstacles I had to face. Some were more difficult than others. Some of the main obstacles I faced were that I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t read and most importantly I was classified with a learning disability, which held me back from a lot of things.

Link to Mary’s account of her experiences as an individual with LD and now an educator.
