    Getting an A* doesn't always mean you're smart, most of the times it just involves regurgitating knowledge. If a person with learning difficulties approaches studying with persistence and commitment, then yes I think you can become smarter.
    I see, this gives me confidence. Thank you for your reply.

    I say this as I have multiple disabilities/learning difficulittes and I always feel out of place with everyone.
    Einstein was dyslexic, dyspraxic, had ADD and autism. Yes it is perfectly possible to be highly intelligent and have learning difficulties.

    Dyspraxic so I get what you are going through!

    Absolutely. I'm a support worker and the people I have worked with in LD have been so intelligent. With the right support anything is possible. I tutor a couple of friends on my course with moderate learning difficulties such as autism and dyslexia. With the right support practically anything is possible
