I'm sure her disability has something to do with the fact that she has trouble dialing a phone, going up stairs, and aiming well when throwing. I've no idea what sort of disability would cause that, though. Damn it, man, I'm a writer, not a doctor!

I highly doubt it would be cancer, though. Cancer's a disease, not a disability, right?

i never really thought it was cancer, but it could be a disability on the same level as burns.
but i do think muscular dystrophy would explain all those

Couldn't all of those be explained by Vestibular system problems?

Getting dizzy by climbing stairs, and having hand to eye cordination (phone dialing and throwing) are all related to spatial orientation, which is controlled by the Vestibular system in the inner ear (related to her inabilty to control her volume, maybe?).

Of course, I'm no doctor and just got this information through a 5 minute search, but it sounds plausible. Also, wouldn't be surprized if it has been mentioned before. If so, sorry.

That's got to be the most plausible guess I've heard so far. :)

Agreed.
That idea actually makes more sense then my theory if i ignore Misha's other factors like eye color, left-handedness, and her having known sign.

A vestibular system problem can actually explain her knowing sign.
According to Wikipedia (all hail the New Gods) some infections / whatnots in the vestibular system can cause hearing loss. If she had an infection there and ended up learning sign because she though that she will never hear again?
Nothing to be seen here. Do check out my little dabbling in the art of words, though.

So, are we finally about to know her true disability? /suspence

I still have a great fear it will never be revealed.

Almost certainly a learning disability like ADHD or a form of dyslexia- you can see distinct hints of it in the demo.

A learning disability gives her trouble with stairs and aiming? For this hypothesis to be even remotely correct, she'd have to have something plus the learning disability. I'd sooner believe that she has some sort of vestibular problem as explained above. Her trouble with some words could perhaps simply be not knowing the sign language form for it or something.

I've always thought that the longer words Misha has trouble with are just uncommon words with no simple sign, and Misha is following Shizune's fingerspelling/fingerwriting.

I could be remembering wrong but

Hasn't it been said by the devs that the school is for the physically disabled and not mentally?

My guess is either that she doesn't have a disability, because devs have also said that non-disabled students can attend Yamaku, or the vestibular system problem said earlier.
