Note: When I was 2 years old, I sustained a head injury after falling off of the front porch, and hitting my head on the concreate. Shortly after, I began to have severe daily seizures that required me to be hospitalized for months at a time. Although I am no longer epileptic, my childhood neurologist believes that the damage sustained from the seizures, which were a result of the head injury, is the cause of my learning disabilities which include dyscalculia. I also had to participate in a few years of Occupational therapy and PT due to fine and gross motor issues involving the left side of my body.  It is now being speculated as to whether or not my ADD may also be related to my pervious head injury.
