Do I have an intellectual disability?

I had a TA (teaching assistant) helping me do the work sitting next to me in most of my lessons in school. This really annoyed me and I just wanted to be left alone like the rest of the class. I didn't feel like I needed a TA. Do I have an intellectual disability?

    You need to see a mental health professional

    We cannot possibly know. But TAs can be assigned to students who have recently arrived from another country and are not yet fluent in English; or who missed out on some part of their education perhaps through illness or a family crisis; or who simply seemed to be having difficulty.

    As this appears to be in the past, and assuming you graduated like everyone else, why obsess about it?

    We don't know.  There could be a number of reasons you had a TA - intellectual disability, learning disability, physical disability, etc.  Without knowing any test results or diagnoses, we can't tell you what disability you may or may not have or why you had a TA.

    without proper testing, we have no way to know
