Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes learning disabilities


Avatar m tn Hi! My little sister has learning disabilities, and she's in a regular classroom. However, there are aids in her classroom and around the school. She is also allowed to go to the Special Education classroom if she's having a "bad day". I've noticed she does much better in a normal classroom with the other kids. She isn't as insecure about being teased, and she gets to be around her friends and her twin sister. She also just likes the whole classroom in general.
Avatar f tn Throughout the years as my son has gotten older he has dealt with learning disabilities. Socially he seems normal. He struggles in school....Our Pediatrican had him evaluated and he was just diagnosed as "learning disabled." His IQ is 62, however adaptive skills are great. Evaluation showed poor short term memory and processing speed. Just wondering what could cause it? Could breathing problems as a child cause this? I need more answers and don't know where to go next.

Avatar n tn My sister is 33. She was diagnosed with Learning Disabilities in 3rd grade and later with ADD as well. She has trouble with reading comprehension, but also misenterprets what people say verbally. This would be difficult for any person or family, however she does other things that I am not sure are standard with LD. She gets into huge rages and can be extremely verbally abusive. With family members she can even be phsically abusive.

Avatar f tn I have overcompensated for my learning disabilities. I am 53 with a college degree, but my last speech therapist(had stroke) says only 10th grade reading, vocabulary, spelling level. I also as child did not write cursive like rest of the kids. Was constantly picked on and bullied. Never had friends. Currently fortunate have 3. I do well for myself. Cannot hold jobs for too long. So started my own company on a plan to achieve self-support from the Social Security administration .
Avatar f tn My son has learning disabilities coupled with bipolar disorder and parania... He lives in a group home with 6 others with similar behaviors. My son is taking several meds a day to keep his chemistry as level as it can possibly be (although the meds don't always work). I'm wondering if there are meds other than seroquel and lithum that can help. His disabilities are severe, but he can function normally at times.
Avatar f tn t know if all of these are caused by the lack of thyroid, but she has learning disabilities and is developmental disabilities, is overweight, has very coarse, dry hair, very sparse eyebrows, acne, dry skin, ocassional bouts of depression, etc. She tires easily and so she has trouble with exercise, and she is now in her late 20s and still has no libido. She's been on Synthroid all her life, and I really feel like she's not on the right dose or maybe even the right medication.
Avatar f tn I appreciate that. But doctors need to know all the information a person has. Clinical depression is easily diagnosed. But that's not to say that other illnesses or disabilities have depression among their symptoms such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc. but I'm sure you know the depression in these disabilities is a seperate cause and there is a lot more going on. You are describing Lyme Disease and obviously it causes a lot more than depression.

Avatar f tn Finally, certain people live into adulthood with thinking troubles that are later diagnosed as learning disabilities or attention deficit disorder (ADD). Many people think of this as a childhood disorder but it can start in childhood and not be diagnosed into adulthood. There are several potentially treatable causes to your symptoms. I strongly suggest you share your concerns with your physician.
