Subject: Plan B?

My life plans at this point in time are to return to college and become a special education teacher. I whole heartedly believe that I have LD for a reason, and instead complaining about the system I want to do my part to improve it.

But I also know that with the severity of my LD, statistically speaking the odds are against me that I will ever succeed. which I can accept, because I have done some research in the field of speacial education and it is by no means an easy proffesion, as I'm sure most of know.

So please give me some other idea's on what occupations there are where you can work with people who have LD.

NobodyImportant,

With some reasonanle accomodation you could probably do what ever you have in mind to do.

I would suggest that you visit the teaching student with LD board and ask some of the teachers how man teachers they know who are LD.

That's a really good idea.

Just so you know, nobody, the best special ed teacher my younger child has had to date is a very dyslexic young woman.
