IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ADULTS WITH BOTH LD AND ADD

If you have both learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder, the process of acceptance and finding your LD/ADD Pride may take a little longer and be more complex. As you may already know, learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder have many similarities. You may find it possible to address the emotional toll of both your LD/ADD at the same time. However, if one or the other holds more emotion for you and seems harder to accept you may need to address the two disabilities separately. The following four questions will help you establish which disability you need to focus on:

1. Do you feel more comfortable talking about one disability over the other?

 I feel more comfortable talking about my Learning Disability

 I feel more comfortable talking about my ADD

 I don't feel comfortable talking about either

 I feel comfortable talking about both

2. Please consider the following statement: "I feel lazy". Do you ever feel this way about yourself?

Yes

No

3. Please consider the following statement: "I feel dumb". Do you ever feel this way about yourself?

Yes

No

4. Do you feel comfortable asking for accommodations you need concerning your LD/ADD?

 I feel comfortable asking for accommodations for my Learning Disability

 I feel comfortable asking for accommodations for my ADD

 I don't feel comfortable asking for accommodations for either

 I feel comfortable asking for accommodations for both
