At what point will DYSCALCULIA count as much as dyslexia? Do you realize how often mental math is required in the middle of daily life where there is NO opportunity to use a calculator? Do you realize the amount of stress people are under in a public setting where automatic recall of math facts are expected for daily life? Do you realize how impatient , unforgiving and condescending society can be if your internal math skills are not up to speed ?
Do you know how many mistakes are made in a given day with math struggles? Pharmacy, driving, money, cooking, recipes, estimating time, distance, sports, games, finances, banking, planning an event, ordering from the Internet, gardening, restaurants, tips, bill paying, temperature, measurement, calendars, medications directions, walking directions, use of GPS, counting change, analog clocks, public transportation schedules, measuring cups, cooking classes, sewing, crafts, bike riding , scoring sports, scoring in games, miles per hour, drivers education rules, being late, getting lost in buildings, getting lost while shopping, getting lost while traveling, being late, needing extra time to find places, being last in a sport, being last in line , no one wanting to be your class partner, finding the page in a book, playing math games, doing math fast enough at a shopping event, knowing what the sale price is , calculating interest or percent, using a calculator for basic stuff , taking the wrong amount of medicine, setting the oven , taking a college class, reading recipes., getting suddenly lost when driving, feeling exhausted , being the late person , understanding temperature:fractions: decimals , not being able to take science because your math sucks , not going fast enough on a math test to score well, having a teacher take away your calculator, feeling dumb, quitting a social activity because it requires math, getting ripped off with money, not figuring math for a legal document, doing taxes, not keeping score in a game, messing up the time in an airline flight, transposing numbers, miscounting numbers, counting on your fingers, not being able to estimate quantity, ordering a volume of deli food, judging math for house projects, using math for art or projects, sewing skills,gardening, architecture, science, electrical work, car mechanics, plumbing exam, numbers needed for history class , Roman numerals, dates on a calendar and navigating daily life with ease. Deciding not to participate in an activity because you can't keep up with the math required. Not purchasing enough of an item as the math is too challenging. Lost money due to lack of rapid math calculations. Not being able to do the math for hobbies like photography or music. Math is everywhere. Not getting a job due to math speed. Math is everywhere. People annoyed with you. Math is everywhere. DyscalculiaCounts as much as dyslexia but they have a stronger voice. Realizing your dyscalculia is far worse than your dyslexia for everyday life. Not measuring up. Not being able to pronounce the word .
Math is needed for many hands-on jobs like electrician, plumber, carpenter, florist, hairdresser, chef, health care , art work, dental tech, mechanic, baker, waitress etc.
Dyscalculia is as important as dyslexia and should not be overlooked. If you want to get an evaluation or find resources, look through the comments at the end of the article.
