For me, fact based subjects were the easiest. I am blessed in that I usually remember facts that I hear or read, so history, literature, and science were easy. Math was a major struggle (my incredibly patient teacher let me have as many extra hours -- yes, hours -- as I needed to take the test.) I was thrilled when P.E was done, and relieved when there was no more art! I remember facts, but not concepts. I can tell you names of people I barely know, but I can't remember "how" to do things that I don't repeat often, or where my family keeps many items.

I have gotten the impression that many people with dyspraxia are good at English, and struggle in math, but there are obviously exceptions to the rule!

IT and art.

In year 7, My teacher said it was Y11 quality and she would of been happy for a y11 if she did my quality of work. I also learnt to draw before i could walk.

I love IT. I learnt (taught myself) html at 9 (1 year affter us getting a computer). I nearly took my IT GSCE early (y7 i think), but when we started tol try and find out about it it got incredibly complicated.

I am now predicted a A in IT. I also know html, dhtml, javascript (some!), Css, a tiny bit of liberty basic which i have proberly forgotten. I also know more about IT than my dads IT advisor at work.

I also love GFX design.

at school geography was my favourite subject and also a subject which i really exceled at i am now doing it as a degree yes its very hard but it a degree. I enjoy the subject because it is so broad and can sometimes be very practical. however i do find the drawing aspect very difficult, but my teachers are now aware of this and are willing to help.
I am up late trying to revise for my exam tomorrow afternoon I am quite sceared because i don't think i know enough.

I've always really enjoyed and been really good at English Language, the last few years I've had to do English Lit tho and although it is hard I enjoy the challenge. I also really enjoyed Spanish-it just came to me naturally, I didnt really have to try. I love Drama due to the whole being a different person and confidence thing
I was good at history when I put my mind to it and took my time, but it really didnt interest me. My worst subjects were probably home economics/cookery and Tech & Design-it was the whole practical thing I couldnt do.
