Hi, sorry to hear about all the trouble you've had,I am in the UK so the tests we have might be different, I'm not sure.
I was diagnosed using WAIS III(UK) (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale), The Wide Range Achievment Test R4, Vernon Wardon Reading Comprehension Test (Revised). There is a lot that they need to test to get an idea of your general learning abilities and IQ so they can see that there is significant difference in your Maths,
They shouldnt take the fact that you were home-schooled into account. same as when people on these forums have mentioned not being diagnosed because they did well on there secondary education exams, I wasn't even asked about exam results, I was asked whether I struggled in maths from a young age, but you shouldn't be jugded on being home-schooled, hope you get it sorted anyway!
