Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: Mother of Dyscalculia-Child

Thanks for the information. I emailed a Belgian friend, and it seems that it is the same in Flemish and probably Dutch.
I think that language causes a lot of problems with Maths.
It would make more sense in english, to have tenty one and tenty two, than eleven and twelve. Or maybe onety one and onety two ?
Also I don't have Dyscalculia, and I am 51.
I was a school teacher briefly, though I had viral encephalitis, which caused some brain damage. Made me a bit disorganised. So I retired from teaching and ever since I have been involved with research and study into Learning Difficulties.
