This is a long, but rewarding, article,... for the avid readers among us. It's called, "The Handicap That Had No Name"
By: Dale S. Brown. It turns out that she has trouble 'taking in' information through her senses. She writes, "... It is quite likely at that time that school personnel and doctors did not know about my minimal brain dysfunction. This fact, perhaps, helps to explain the swiftness and harshness of people's judgments. My low performance was always seen in terms of "carelessness" and "not trying," an attitude that led to a workload which was heavy almost to the point of cruelty..." She writes, "I was not crazy. I had an identifiable medical syndrome. I was not alone any more." http://www.ldonli...rson/22723
