Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: New To The Site, Have To Reveal This To My Boss
Posted by Miss Dixie on June 19 2012 02:34 AM
Thank you Justfoundout and eoffg for your responses.
I appreciate your support and your suggestions.
Tomorrow is the day I meet with my boss to let her know that I suspect I have this disability.
I have discussed it wih my family and my trainer and it is the best thing to do now the time has come. I would rather bring it forward myself rather than have it brought to me by upper management.
I am going in with a postive attitude with a list of duties that I am able to do and outline the steps I am currently taking to improve my math abilities.
She is a very receptive person and I am hoping she will be understanding, and my job will not be in question. I don't want to give up and will continue to practice these claims but I just need them to understand that it is going to take me longer than others and there are some things that I am not able to without further education and training.
If I may ask those who can to keep a good thougt in mind.
I will let you know how this meeting goes.
Thank you also for the technical advice I will have to wait and see what the response is from my boss. As we have a very tight security with our equipment and programs, I may not be able to employ them at work but will investigate them further for home use they sound very interesting. Amazaing what technology is able to do.
I am very glad to have found this site, I hope to return tomorrow with good news. Non the less I plan to stick around. I know there is a lot to learn from all of you!
