Thanks for the support Jus, I'm definitely interested in pursuing this doc.. i think it would be interesting.. and helpful to everyone.
Yes I'm aware that this wouldn't be a diagnosis tool, but rather a way to define your dyscalculia better.. as even within ourselves, just saying your dyscalulic doesn't give any representation to your area of greatest difficulty.
I do agree that the best way is probably to stick within the presently defined neuroscience sub categories.. and perhaps divide them up a little more. with perhaps symptom questions that would categorize you further in the subtypes.. as even the symptoms within the subtypes are vast.. and each pairing of "categories" within subtypes creates it's own special inabilities.
(1) Poor language and verbal retrieval skills
(2) Working memory skills
(3) Executive functioning skills
(4) Faulty visual-spatial skills
If you don't mind eoffg and Jus i'll pick your brains about this a little more.
