Hi, I have just recently discovered after 34 years I may have a mix between dyslexia and dyscalculia. However, I am in the process of applyingg for the test in order to be offically diagnosed.

I am hoping someone may be able to answer my question - there are numerous websites and help in relation to dyslexia, because it is more recognised than dyscalculia is at the present time. Additionally, there seems to be a number of career/study direction a person with dyslexia can aim towards and become successful in, e.g. architect, social sciences and so forth. What I am wanting to know is - what good career direction a person with dyscalculia can aim for without maths being a major factor?

thanks

Dear Antony,
Good question. And I know that a list of good (or at least possible) careers for dyscalculics does exist on the internet. One of my friends found this list on the internet and began reading from it to me while she and I were on the phone. I didn't see the list myself and I haven't asked her how she found it. I recall that one career was "lawyer". Please let us all know if you find this information online yourself. And I'll ask my friend how she found it when I talk to her again.

As I understand it, once a student passes College Algebra (or gets it waived), that student will not have to take another math course if he/she goes on to study law. Let me know if you are able to confirm this.

I posted a thread here once called my career choice . Stick it in search ( top left corner,navigation square) and see where people have found hope and despair.
