Asking for help

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

It is not always easy to ask for help when you have dyscalculia and you have not been diagnosed or understood until now. Read this piece from a forum. Best quote:

‘Ask for help’ seems to be everyone’s favorite phrase, like it’s some kind of magic chant that will suddenly allow me to comprehend numbers and equations. But, it really isn’t easy for me to ask for help. Because of what my dad and other people have told me my whole life, my math confidence is absolutely crushed and I struggle to even answer things in class that I know because I think that I’ll just get it wrong and peole will laugh at me. It’s no help when all of my friend are extremely good at math either.

Schooldistricts actively deny children support!

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Horrible news from Texas:

Over a decade ago, Texas officials arbitrarily decided what percentage of students should get special education services — 8.5 percent — and since then they have forced school districts to comply by strictly auditing those serving too many kids, a Houston Chronicle investigation has found.

Their efforts, which started in 2004 but have never been publicly announced or explained, have saved the Texas Education Agency billions of dollars but denied vital supports to children with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, epilepsy, mental illnesses, speech impediments, traumatic brain injuries, even blindness and deafness.

OK they do not mention Dyscalculia but the path is clear.

What does “New Math” mean for children with dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The old way has always failed our students with special needs. The challenge now will be for regular education teachers (and state curriculum) to move at a pace that makes sense for the entire class with the new strategies. Thankfully, however, number sense is now built into the day for all students, including our students with learning disabilities.

Embracing the new math might be an important step for a parent of a child with a learning difficulty. For many the traditional methods have never worked.
