    Any metal workers?

    Over the years I've been turning my garage into a hobby metal fab/machine shop. Rebuilding my jeep motor now and so far I've been able to do all the machine work myself. Would be more fun if it wasn't my primary transport :lol: Anyone else here into metal working of any kind?

    learning disability?

    Why do I see Auditory processing disorder often referred to as a learning disability? I don't see it talked about with hard of hearing and I can't find a lot of difference in the effects of HOH vs APD. There are some but this biggest thing in both seems to be problems with auditory information...
