    Question regarding learning disability and aspergers

    My question is too long to put in the title so this is my question: Is it possible to be diagnosed with Asperger and ADHD when young in 4th grade. But have a undiagnosed learning disability that has gone unnoticed? I'm a 21 year old female, in college, and noticed since I started college how...

I am however sick and tired of being told even by...

    Simple languages

    I know many autistics and otherwise learning disabled struggle with language acquisition, or with pronunciation. Natural languages are complex and irregular and take years to learn properly. So, how about conlangs? Esperanto is a really simple language. Toki pona is as simple as they come...

    Can autism be a learning disability?

    Exactly what the title says: is autism a learning disability? Can some forms of autism be a learning disability? Are most learning disabilities either/or, or can you have different degrees of them?
