Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: Test results came in - not good

In my case, I'd told my DARS Counselor that I'd found this forum. That was passed from him to the psychologist who was in charge of my testing. We all want to think that "professionals" behave "professionally", but this isn't always the case. I agree with your statement.
"... Also, I think they want to be the gatekeepers, so if you approach them on your own (vs. being referred by a teacher), it's almost as if they view it as a challenge to their authority."
It's a cruel twist when something that we are so happy to have discovered about ourselves is maligned as an example of "mal-adaptive behavior" or perhaps a "delusion",... just because the professional didn't think of it first! - jus'
