Actually, robertj, I apologize. The way that I'd copied and pasted that link that Geoff gave us in his post,... the link wasn't 'found' and it wasn't 'connecting'. So, I've removed the link that wasn't working in my above post, repasted it so that it works. And I'll send you a PM with an update. - jus'

Great idea! I hope to register soon (gotta ask my parents) - hopefully more dyscalculics will be able to get help through our organization.

Dear CheshireKat,
We have another one of those weblinks posted to the forum. (See above.) Sadest of all is when I see that someone has taken the time to give a big 'welcome' to the spammer. - jus'

tr3slunas and a few other have participated in some testing over there in the UK. Have you all gotten your 'results' back yet? Or, were you given projected dates of when you'll 'hear back' from the professionals involved in the testing? Does any of this 'tie in' with getting a UK Dyscalculia Association started? And, Geoff, it's still March, Dyscalculia Awareness Month. Are there any 'chores' that you'd like for us all to 'pitch in with' toward getting ourselves more 'organized'. <dyscalculic inside joke> - jus'

Hi all,

If people are interested in forming a committee or just sharing ideas for the Dyscalculia UK then let me know, it would be great to get this underway, but we need to pull together to get it going. Just drop me a pm, ask Geoff for my email or leave a message on the Global forum.

Thanks all.

Clare.

Clare I am currently writing (though taking a break due to exams) the information for a uk website- salsa has been doing a great job of raising awareness through trade unions- I am happy to talk about setting up a comitee but I think the website should be completed first - pm me if you want to help, I can let you know how.
Count me in! Wink

Dear tr3s, Clare, and salsa,
I just want you to know that I'm always reading your updates here, but that I 'restrain myself' from posting so that your names and your 'fresh posts' will stand out for others, especially in the UK. I wish you all the greatest success with starting an Association. - jus'

Hi, Tr3s, Jus & Salsa,

Tr3s - GOOD LUCK!!!!!!! Hope your exams go well, i'm going to be moving house in about 2 weeks (I currently use a dongle for the internet so i'll still have access but my postings might be a little erratic), i'll looking into buying the website package and then i can work on a design as such, has anyone got any ideas to for a 'logo' to show support, i recently received a breast cancer awareness ribbon on face book show your support and i noticed that diabetes and the heart disease (I think) also had ribbons and i thought that we could have our own idea/logo.

I do like the strap line "Discalculia - when numbers just don't add up" as our 'tag' line, it's quite a good one so ppl to get a quick understanding of what dyscalculia partially means. If anyone has any ideas on what the website should look like then feel free to let me know Smile Time to go and pack a few boxes!Shock

hello everyone, sorry not been around for a couple of weeks, our router has died and cant get on the internet only on my hubby's computer. its so slow. patience is a virtue i know. well it should be fixed this weekend. i'm off to annual confernce in bournemouth in 3 weeks time. I will take my badges and information and ask the education dept to advertise the forum and if anyone has any other websites for dyscalculia then could you let me have them. I will try and compile a leaflet kind of thing for uk people. great way to get the news out through confernce there will be around 1200 people there over the week. I have control of a part of a website and i will put the dyscalculia forum on my next learning newsletter which goes out to the branch.

hope everyone is well, the weather is getting better now so that makes a whole lot of difference. keep spreading the word everyone.

Hi,

I've just joined this forum (see my post on the parents forum). What progress have you made since posting your appeal last year?

Hello again, Helen C. I've read your post on the Parents section and 'greeted' you there. I'm just trying to 'follow' the train of thought. Whose appeal from last year are you asking about in your above post? - jus'

I'm needing a little help,... or maybe I just need to take my computer back to the 'tech'. My computer crashed a few weeks ago. When I got it back, my 'tech' had tightened up the 'security' settings considerably. I used to be able to easily (and with no ill effect) access the link that Geoff gave us in his post #23 (or was it #26, sorry) above. It's the link for the Global Forum, (free hosting site). But now, my computer inserts just the first part of the website and gives me a 'blank page',... pretending that it's done it's job. A box does come up, asking me if I want to 'allow' the site. I click 'okay' and wait, but the box goes away and the page stays 'blank'. - jus'

Edit;: Jus if I recall same thing happened to me when I went back and clicked on the link, cant try it now but will have a go in the next couple of days.

The link to Global Forum works perfectly for me now, even faster than before. Thanks, Geoff. And, I've edited my post #39, updating that same link within my post, too.

Tr3s, that's great that you've got some pages written for the British Association, with "groundwork into the legal and where to find help aspects of dyscalculia'. Have you found anything on starting an Online Association, especially within the UK? And, you may have noticed that when UK'ers have shown up in the past months interested in being tested, I've sent them to the Thread where you participated in the Dr. Butterworth endeavor? You might have even received some PMs due to my 'referrals'? Getting a British site up and running will be a huge improvement. All my backing to you on this. - jus'

Hi all,

I've been 'leafing' through the charity commission for any useful odds and ends for the possible 'charity' side if it comes to that, working in the charity sector i know of a few 'support' organisations that have become charities. I'd love to read what you have found Tr3's, sorry Jus i emailed you the wrong link having another D-oh moment! I would upload a logo but i can't find it on my netbook, i'll have to investigate my few USB's and see if it's on there and then i'll up load it.

I will start transferring what I have written over to the global forum, To clarify I am now writing up the main text for webpages under certain headings for information I have synthesized and digested.

Here is Higher education
http://forum.dysc...amp;t=1623

I was in the middle of writing 'dyscalculia in the work place' will and try and finish in the next few weeks. Much of my work has been into support, law, rights and adult areas - if someone would like to take up the reigns for writing a page on dyscalculia in children/ at school it would be a great help - If a parent who has been through the process with their child would like to add that would be great Smile
