School is no walk in the park. Neither is college, or uni for that matter. Things can be even harder for a lot of us who focus, learn, and engage in different ways. Disorders such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD are treated far more seriously in the classroom now than they ever have been, but that doesn’t mean that the education system is perfect. Finding things difficult? Not only can you ask your parents, teachers and tutors for extra support, but there are loads of online resources available to you to help you understand your best learning style and how to adapt your studies.
There are so many different ways of learning – some people don’t fit the traditional education system as well as others, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Our differences should be celebrated.
No matter how much you may feel like you’re struggling, know that you’re not alone and that help is out there – don’t go through it all by yourself. One pretty amazing example of someone overcoming the struggles they faced just because they learned differently was John Corcoran, an American school teacher who had a tough time throughout school, and made it to the age of 48 without being able to read or write.
To read about Corcoran’s inspirational story, head to the BBC’s article on his life.
