Accommodations in college, it’s not easy

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Read the story in our link for today from someone who wanted accommodations for her dyscalculia in college. She just got flat out told that the accommodations were unfair!

A little over a year ago, I was discussing my accommodations before an upcoming exam with a professor of mine. Even though he signed the agreement to the accommodations from the university, he was still confused about the whole thing. He then proceeded to express his feelings of how my accommodations were “unfair to the other students.” I knew then that the semester was going to be an uphill battle.

It would be so great if people who are educators get themselves trained in a dyscalculia awareness training, so they stop missing early signs and understand that accommodations try to rebalance the playing field, like a ramp for someone with a wheelchair and the handicapped parking at the grocery store.

The other side of the coin

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Today a good reminder from Rocket City Mom that when our children get diagnosed with a condition we tend to focus solely on the challenges this will bring. But there is always the other side of the coin (or medal) with opportunities and strengths that the child also has and develops. A good encouragement to focus on that part of the issue for a change.
