"Ruth's syndrome" doesn't sound all that uncommon to me, especially the part about sports. I know many low muscle tone/clumsy kids who are great athletes. And perhaps it's not a coincidence that many of them are skiers. When I learned to ski recently, I looked up at the black diamond trails and thought, "So-and-So goes on THAT? So-and-So, who constantly steps on my feet and bumps into desks? So-and-So who can't muster the postural control to sit up at her desk?" There's a dissertation in this, I think.

Liz, as an educator myself, I really appreciated your sharing this summary as well as the link to the original article. I feel strongly that our schools need to educate all students and meet their individual needs, regardless of the student's particular challenges.
