Default Learning difficulty without a name?

I read through the paperwork I got when I got diagnosed with my learning difficulty and the other issues I have, but they don't actually say what my learning difficulty is apart from "learning difficulty"

I think they mentioned severe but without looking back through I can't remember, is severe learning difficulty even a thing or did they make it up just to get rid of me?

I do remember I really struggled with the test they gave me and I got a bit frustrated

What they said isn't in that list, they just said "severe learning difficulty" they weren't specific

Can you ask your Pdoc or doctor what does that mean exactly, and maybe ask for more details, whispershadow? I think it's your right to know these things. Let us know how it goes Sending many hugs and encouragement to you?

I moved house since that diagnosis and I do have the report printed out but I don't understand what it says on the report, it means nothing to me

And if I ask anyone to explain they'll get angry at me

I'm so sorry to hear that people are getting angry with you. You have the right to ask questions and get answers! Not understanding things isn't shameful. I agree with MickeyCheeky, if you can't ask someone now, you can do it later!

Is the test for IQ and how you learn. In the past I had a neuropsychology eval
which includes IQ and psychological eval, and I have specific learning difficulty related to visual spatial deficits so affects learning geometry and navigating the world when driving or walking, as well as when reading nonverbal cues ( explains my social awkwardness to some degree). Also had MRI and PET Scan of brain and pet scan results showed mild brain damage in area of visual spatial learning.
