Has anyone been diagnosed with this learning disability? (or has a child that has?) If so, could you give me your experiences?

Great!! Where was she diagnosed? Was she diagnosed as an adult? What differences (if any) did it make with her education?

My 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with it by her school and now when she takes a tests there is a teacher right on hand for her to ask if she is seeing the numbers right. EX. 89+75= she asks them is she seeing them in the right order or not. And this has made a major difference!also I have used the hooked on phonics/math portion with her and that really got her going.This condition never goes away but They can 'retrain'thier brains to a certain extent. also I have found that if she eats chocolate or drinks caffiene right before homework or having a test it messes with her cause she is 'jumpy' and cant concentrate as well. Anyone with it just has to SLOW DOWN AND TAKE THIER TIME doing anything with numbers.My other daughter is dyslexic in reading and the hooked on phonics reading program worked great on her to! Tell your wife I wish her good counting and I know exactly what she is going through! All she can do is slllllooooowwwww down and take her time and check herself and recheck and recheck and recheck and recheck...... well she understands. lol

Thank you. I think that I have this condition. I was never diagnosed because there were no such things back in the day when I was in school (60's & 70's). However, I fit the profile exactly. This has come to my attention recently as I am now back in school and have to take some math classes to graduate.

I am hoping that CPCC will have the ability to test me and properly diagnose me. Just knowing this exists is a great relief for me!

Here's what my wife said... not sure how helpful it is to you:

I was diagnosed in my assessments class (we did practice assmt and I met criteria) so it wasn't formal. I opted NOT to go through the formal battery b/c the accommodations you can get on the college level are so minimal (at best). Typically the argument is made that if u made it this far why do u need mods now? The only real difference made is internal-i have a problem but it has a name and more importantly doesn't mean I'm dumb. My IQ is well above average which also makes it highly unlikely I would get mods. In CMS you CANNOT be qualified as "academically gifted" and "SLD" b/c technically you're not disabled-you're just "average" in Math.
