Question: reading disorter


 edaigle - Wed Jul 25, 2007 2:30 pm

i'm a 38 year old male in good heathy. All of my life i've struggled with reading. I get drozzy after reading only a few paragraphs and I find it hard to consentrate on the material, it sometimes take me reading a phrase several time before I understand what i've read.
i spent most of my lower education with a C average this was posible though a learning disability class.

User avatar You may suffer from dyslexia or other reading problems. There is also the possibility of attention deficit disorder (ADD) or sleep disorder, resulting in excessive sleepiness. I would recommend a psychological workup with a therapist or clinic that specializes in these kinds of issues. Help is available once an accurate diagnosis is made.
