I found myself thinking about the kids who were in the special ed class when I was in school. Many of them were ADHD, others were probably challenged due to fetal alcohol syndrome, and others no doubt had other problems that made them "different". I look back now on how it must have felt to be in a special class. I don't remember teasing any of these kids but I also didn't go out of my way to be close to them.
I never felt that I really fit in either but for different reasons than having a learning disability. It's good to read this book and have an understanding of how people not only separate themselves but are separated by the educational system because they don't fit what's considered "normal".
