Sadaiah's LD Story

By: Sadaiah, Age 12, Aurora, Colorado

I can easily recall being the kid that had the wrong answer in class.

My name is Sadaiah. I'm in the 7th grade and I'm 12 years old. I have LD, a disability that makes learning harder.

I guess I've always had issues with LD every since Pre-school. My mom always said I had a gap in my learning. So in the 2nd grade I was tested for LD. The results came back positive I had no idea what was wrong with me. I kind of blocked it out, until the grade I'm in now. My mom and I were at my IEP meting and my teacher said ADHD. I felt my tear ducks fill with tear. I had heard of it but never thought I had it. I felt stupid and unintelligent.

Since then I have learned to accept my LD. The people that have helped me the most are my mom and my friend Melissa, she also has LD. Another person is my teacher Mrs. Stout. Day by day I'm learning new things about myself.
