Calm down! It's okay. I know a lot of blind kids with A.D.D. My brother-in-law has it.

Sarah is right, don't stress it. All you can do is try your best. Focus, planning, and follow through. We all go through difficulties and have issues to bare or battle.

I went through school classified for a learning disability, ADD/ADHD and then you throw a healthy dose of visual impairment on top. I can understand your frustration and the challenge you are dealing with. I can not say I know your feelings because we all are individuals with different experiences. I can tell you that there are strategies out there to help focus, plan, and follow through (These could be study skill strategies or strategies to deal with other issues). I used many through out my life, they become second nature. I would say my ADD and Learning disability were the reason my guidance counselor felt I should look into vocational/technical school rather then college. He couldn't look past these issues, even when I had the qualifications to go on. You can do whatever you put your mind to, it just takes focus, planning and follow through.

Over time, the skills you learn and practice become second nature. Good luck and know whatever it is put in front of you, yu can overcome it with preparation. You seem to have a great support team of friends to root you on as well.

Hi! My name is Davion and I'm a female. Well I just want to know. Why is it so hard for my friends to take me to lunch with them at school. I know that their probably worried that something might happen, but I'm trying my best to get them to know my real personality. But every time I say, "can i go to lunch with u." They always have an excuse. What should i do?

A**a, What a JAWS trick! Try setting yourself a schedule for homework and sticking to it. Like for example on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when you know American Idol is on, try to be done by 6:30 so you can get dinner in too. If possible, see if yoiu can work in a teacher's classroom so it's quiet; I'm sure you have one who might let you! I'm not sure how good this is, but I do it: If my teacher tells me what my homework is during class, and I'm not missing anything important, I just knock the homework out while I'm in class. Give yourself breaks too! On lunch, just get out your laptop and turn your lunch break into a Kansas (music group) fest!
Hope this helps......... Just pull the laptop out without saying anything.......... remember it can be a LAPtop.
