Troubles with Comprehension

April from New York, GED Student

Let me start out by saying that I am 36 years of age. I have three very beautiful daughters and a very supportive fiancé. I am disabled, and I have tried in the past to obtain my GED before and failed. Now that I have the support in my life, I feel I can achieve anything I put my mind to. My kids have always wanted me to get my GED, and I promised them I would at least try. My 18-year-old daughter is the first of my three kids to graduate. She has a tumor in her brain, and yet she pushes her way through school, has a job, and is getting ready to go to college. My 14-year-old has disabilities as well, and even though she struggles in school, she still passes all of her classes. My fiancé sees the potential that I have inside and tells me how much he would love to see me bring it to the surfice. They all stand behind me in my decision. I had to give up school because I was a teenage mom at 16. I’ve made several attempts to get my GED and have failed. With that in mind, I am so proud of myself for going after my GED with the support of my family and fiancé. Knowing all that, I know I can achieve it.

I have A.D.D., and I have problems comprehending what I read. I have solved my problems by fighting to get a diagnosis. Now I can work on taking care of my disabilty as well as obtaining my GED. I need more free literature on how to prepare myself for the GED test. I also need a teacher to work closely with me--one that I can call upon whenever I need help due to my comprehension issues.

I hope to have my GED diploma in hands and show every one that has ever doubted me that they were wrong. I want to be able to find a career that I can do out of my home and get a job doing it. I want to better my life and make my kids proud. My goal is to practice—like I am now—take the test, and pass. Everyone should be able to have access to the knowledge they need in order to achieve their goals. My dream is have a financial stability for me, my kids, and my fiance.

I would like to thank everyone who has been there for me and supportive of me.
