What teachers know about dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

instead of appropriate instructional methods, teachers’ knowledge about
dyscalculia has not yet been taken into account.

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.
