I recently found a disorder called Dyscalculia and I was hoping that you could give me advice on how to get treatments and how to help my parents understand that I seriously need help in mathematics and that I think this may be the answer. I have also been diagnosed with Depression in the past (just in case some background information maybe be helpful).
The symptoms I seem to have include: having trouble with algebra, doing well with book work but then failing tests, doing well in all other subjects, having troubles with directions, trouble with finances and difficulty reading analog clocks. I've struggled with math for my whole life and I would appreciate any help you may be able to offer!

Re: Dyscalculia?

The best way to do it is to get tested for learning disabilities. If you are currently in school, there's probably someone there who can recommend good local resources. Your disability services office, tutoring center, student success center, maybe someone like that.
