District Can't Test for Dyscalculia?

QUESTION:
I think my daughter has Dyscalculia. The district doesn't have a testing procedure yet. Can you recommend any DVD tutorials I can purchase to help her with Algebra II?

DYSCALCULIA.ORG:
The district needs only assess her for a specific learning disability in mathematics. Ask them to give her a standardized achievement test like the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement-II (KTEA-II) and to use the error analysis tools. Is she a senior in high school? Is algebra required for graduation? What state and district are you in? The district cannot refuse to evaluate your daughter. Put your request in writing.
