Our 8-year old son, who was just diagnosed last month, also has a learning disability (Central Auditory Processing Disorder). Now, it seemed to me the odds of the same person having a chronic illness (particularly an auto-immune disease) AND an LD were kind of slim. So, I asked on my LD list, and got several responses saying their child has both an auto-immune condition and an LD, and some have more than one of either or both. And, I found an article which stated that children with diabetes are basically twice as likely to have a learning disability as non-diabetic children.
So, if you don't mind sharing, how many with T1 also have an LD of some sort (dignosed or suspected)? If you're more comfortable e-mailing me privately, please do so at Hueyhome@msn.com.
Just trying to satisfy my own curiosity...
