Health Questions: Can Epilepsy affect what subjects at school your good at at?
Question by IloveNewYork: Can Epilepsy affect what subjects at school your good at at?
I have epilepsy and I’m quite good at most subjects (my best being history,RE and English).But I am terrible at Pyschics and Math.
Has this got anything to do with my Epilepsy or am I just not good at the subjects?
Answer by dropping bombs on your mom
epilepsy does not have any affect on specific brain parts related to learning. some people are just “math” people and some people are more “verbal” people which it sounds like you are. i’ve read studies where it states that in general, men are better in math and science whereas girls are better at reading/writing. lately this is the subject of some debate because there are females good in math/science…it is just that traditionally women were never encouraged to be strong in these areas.
if you are getting poor grades in those areas, you might want to consider tutoring or getting help for those subjects. i know i am absolutely terrible at math and needed math tutoring my whole academic career.
congratulations to you for working hard in school! hope this helps. alicia
