Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: My experience with getting diagnosed recently
Posted by mathmustdie on September 09 2009 03:04 AM
Hi, thanks everyone who commented on my post.
I am glad I figured out that the Mathematics Disorder and Dyscalculia are the same because friends/family were telling me they were two different diagnosis. I also figured since the college didn't really care about my childhood/high school diagnosis of a math disorder that it wasn't specialized enough and that dyscalculia was more thorough.
tr3slunas- Here are the tests that I was given according to what is written on my document:
Wechlser Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence
Dellis-Kaplan Executive Function System, selected subtests
Woodcock Johnson Tests of Achievement 3rd Edition, selected subtests
California Verbal Learning Test 2nd Edition
Grooved Peg Board
Boston Naming Test
Rey-Osterreith Complex Figure (Rey-O)
I definitely don't believe its just anxiety that is keeping me from driving; I actually think that anxiety is caused by feeling as if I can't understand/percieve things correctly. It's good to read how others feel the same way. :)
