If there is no other gift we can give to a person labeled as “learning disabled” then it should be the opportunity to believe in them self. If you are labeled as “learning disabled” there is no better time to start choosing to believe in yourself. The content of this message is to work toward your goals in the best way you can.
Many people may be concerned about the message they send to their loved one or anyone for that matter that they set them up for failure. One may be concerned that if a learning disabled person is allowed to have expectations they will only be let down and nobody wants to see anyone suffer. The message here is not to set up expectations but just to allow a person to set some goals, like anyone else is taught to do. The best strategy for dealing with any hardship or for attaining a goal is to accept where you are, but not to see it as all you will ever achieve. There are many possibilities for a person labeled as “learning disabled” and many ways to feel empowered that you are contributing to the world.
It is too bad that there is an all encompassing term like “learning disabled” for such a wide range of people, with a wide variety of opportunity and circumstances. So many people labeled as “learning disabled” are wonderfully contributing to society. Yet, society still likes to label the “learning disabled” as a burden to it’s growth. The strategy is simple. Believe in yourself regardless of the limits that others try to make sure you know. Don’t hesitate to take on a task nobody believes you an do and don’t hesitate to try again if you really want it. The only real limit, the only lack of success is never trying to achieve your dreams. Everyone contributes who tries.
