On LD, spouses and shouting

Question: How do I nicely ask a mate with learning disabilities to not shout at me?

My answer:

Well,it depends on what the LD is and why they are shouting.

In most cases, you can tell the person the same way you would tell a mate who is not LD not to shout: Please don’t shout.

There are some LD (including NLD) where a person has less ability to tell if they are shouting. Here you might want to try “Did you know you were shouting?”

But, of course, in some situations, a lot of people do shout, whether or not they are LD.
