I spent many long hours inside and outside of school practicing techniques to improve my auditory and verbal challenges. I spent countless sessions in speech therapy and occupational therapy. I spent numerous nights reading, rephrasing and summarizing text. I discovered ways to capitalize on my exceptional visual abilities to compensate for the auditory deficit.
