I can't spell at all, I read very slowly, and I write like a fourth grader.
I have flunked out of three colleges ... Indiana University of Pennsylvania,
Ohio University, and Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
At the age of 25, I was tested for a learning difference/disability (L.D.) and
was found to be cross dominant with visual tracking deficits.
• Since then I have graduated from:
- St. Francis Medical Center School of Respiratory Care
Respiratory Technician diploma program - GPA 3.81
- Northwestern University (Chicago) School of Respiratory Care
Respiratory Therapist diploma program - GPA 3.69
- LaRoche College
B.A. Natural and Health Sciences - GPA 3.91
• Tested again at age 44; diagnosis - written expression disability.
• This Guide explains how I turned my academic life around. I hope it helps
• Take charge
break the cycle of self-doubt, anxiety, excuses, guilt, and
• Realize your potential. Live without regrets.
I am smart and so are you!
