    It's our language that takes things out of context because there isn't enough context for it to work with. Notice how it absolutely cannot overlap itself. Nor does it desire to. God forbid it evolves to addmit nature to its (surfacebaseness). Is it affraid of drouning or something. Can't learn to swim? Oh right, swimming is too natural.

    it=our language. The one we're using.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    you've mentioned dyspraxia before...do you want to talk about that...it sounds interesting.

Before the school year was up, I was in the slow reading group because I could not do the phonics drills. It was very boring.
    My reading technique is 100 percent visual. I recognize words as pictures and I don't break them apart into sounds as an auditory reader would do. If a word is badly misspelled, even if it is phonetically spelled, I will not recognize it. I need to have people read unfamiliar words to me several times before I can recognize them and remember them and pronounce them.
    Also, if I'm given multi-step directions, I am not likely to remember all of the steps.
    I probably have a little ADD, too.
    As one of the many learning differences I have, this one probably affects me the most. It's very likely that I also have CAPD. Phonics still doesn't make much sense to me. It was worse when I was younger and couldn't understand most of what was said to me, but even today I've still had to ask people to repeat themselves 2 or even 3 times before I can turn the sounds into meaning.

    I think I have mild dyslexia. And I'm impatient with reading, in general (though not with writing). I find it easier to follow things through discussion and learn through picking at others' brains.

    i frequently ask people with dialect or bad language to repeat themselves. those idiots will usually repeat the words with the exact same dialect, same mumbling, same volume. the only add a little bit of anger. when i ask for the third or forth time, they are as angry as i am.

    its a very minor problem for me, as it only affects people who cant talk like human beings. but i assume that it always takes me more concentration to understand people, than it takes most people. thats why i like to block the meaning of words out, a soon as i am not interested in a group discussion i a bar or something.

    what about people who are almost exclusively visual thinkers?
    they cant learn from hearing and reading unless they are given time to visualise the information. when in a lecutre adn the guy up the front is talking and writing on the board, how are oyu supposed to do this? must they relearn the entire subject from their notes in their own time, what if the teacher only distributed certain pieces of information through speech, like when a question was asked and the visual learner either didnt have time or didnt think to write it down. how are they to know what info theyll be missing alter on. i dont see how the visual learner can keep up in class unless they ask the teacher to repeat themselves and dance around simple things like E means this, sorry what does it mean again?, E means this! the visual learner wont even knwo what they dont understand, all the input they are recieveing is meaningless noise.
    are school councilers supposed to educated about this kind of stuff?
    are there learning and teaching alternatives?

    How do you do with that in the presence of background noise?
    I find that words sound like gibberish when there is background noise, especially competing conversations. I have to ask people to repeat themselves two or three times and I also have to ask them to look at me when they speak. Otherwise their voices just trail off into nothing. And I don't have any hearing loss...

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
