Hello all! I've tried to do some research into this on google, and I've also asked at college (it being summer though, they're in no hurry to answer emails...).
Quick background, I started in developmental classes in college after taking the COMPASS test (Math 100). My professor for that class was awesome, and suggested that I get tested for Dyscalculia after I described to him the trouble I had with math. All the way back to learning addition, math was a confusing and frustrating endeavor, and I can't count the hours I spent crying over worksheets!
So, I need to try to find out where to be tested in the state of Tennessee. Assistance paying for it would be great, but more important is for it to be someplace that will diagnose me with a certificate that my college will accept.
Hi Emily I was tested through my state's Vocational Rehab services which also helped pay for other things after I became a client. Each state may call it something different but that's one possibility.
I also found this: http://psychoeduc...oners.aspx - see practitioner Sherry Mee Bell at top of page.
Former Ex. Ed. teacher - that might be another place for you to get more resources even if you don't get tested there.
There's also this PDF document I found from U. of Memphis that provides more info. on LD documentation guidelines at college:http://www.memphis.edu/sds/disabilitysvcs/pdfs/Guidelines_for_Documentation_-_LD.pdf
which might give you more insight

Another place to check, Serinity_Rose, is Tennesee State University in Nashville. I found this pdf (with no year on it) that shows how a student in the Masters psychology curriculum would be graded on administering an IQ test,... indicating the presence of this program at that college. http://ww2.tnstat...MASTER.pdf
So, you might call them and offer to be a 'test subject' for their grad students. - jus'
