Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: Test results came in - not good
Posted by twistedxkiss on January 24 2009 10:15 PM
My psychologist first tried to tell me I had math anxiety and ADD and that was the cause of my problems, but the tests that they performed proved otherwise. I still had to push him to be honest with what the test results said because he didn't want to diagnose me with a learning disability. If you truly believe you have dyscalculia, you don't have to take this one test as proof otherwise and let it go. If you keep trying you may get a different result.
I wonder if their comment about your parents not introducing you to higher math is a prejudicial comment about homeschoolers in general. I know with your parents it will be hard, but I would get a second opinion. If your parents wont let you, I know it's devastating, but if you can hold out until you're 18 you can do it without them. It will be difficult, but I promise the world wont end. In the meantime you may just have to do the best you can. I'll do whatever I can to help, I'm getting pretty good at math these days.
