inspiring stories

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

At Brandfort college they heard inspiring stories from a range of accomplished women; one stuck out:

From Bev Fox, head of FE art, science and humanities at the college, there was a story of overcoming dyslexia and dyscalculia and discrimination. As a physical trainer in the Army, she was able to train young men to join the elite Parachute Regiment but was not allowed to become a Para herself. That frustration, along with the military’s stance on LGBT personnel at the time, saw her move into the prison service and then into teaching, as a public services and sports tutor.

She said: “My advice is, whatever you want to be, just go for it.”

Language confusion adds to the problem

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

From a tweet by @sparrowlicious_ 

A problem in German: because of the way we say numbers I always get terribly confused with some two to more digit numbers. (for example: “seven-and-thirty” is 37 but my  brain has trouble translating that) I fear I have slight dyscalculia

Other ways Dyscalculia can affect you

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

We know people with dyscalculia have trouble with basic arithmetic but here is a conversation with someone explaining some other issues that cause them problems:

Then there’s the no sense of time, direction or spatial awareness aspects. Since numbers don’t make much sense to me, I easily lose track of time and am always late. If you leave me in a large paper bag, I will get lost. Making mental maps, reading maps, finding my way about is another set of tasks my brain misfires on. I walk into immovable objects a lot. Doors, door frames, the occasional wall and more can all bear witness to this. No those bruises are not dodgy, and yes I really did walk into a door. I forget how long my arms are, how wide my shoulders are and prang them constantly.

Oops, abusing “bad at numbers”

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A blog post where they make the point that you may be abusing the “I’m so bad at numbers”. One example they give:

You Use ‘Bad At Numbers’ To Avoid Keeping Good Records

It’s a lot easier to say ‘I don’t understand the numbers’, ‘I don’t understand what I’m meant to do with my receipts’, ‘I don’t know what I’m meant to be doing, I can’t do it, I’m bad at numbers.’

Watch your money

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

As far as I can remember, numbers have meant absolutely nothing to me. I’m frequently late to social events, meetings, and nail appointments. I get lost at my place of work, at least once a week. When I pay for things in cash, there’s a good chance I under pay. Some may read these behaviors as a reflection of poor character, but the reality is I have a learning disability called dyscalculia.
