Dyscalculia Diagnosis @ Univ. of Washington, Seattle

VISITOR: Yes, where can I get tested? I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to math and I feel like crying everytime I do higher math because I keep making stupid mistakes! Sometimes I stare at numbers for the longest time trying to figure out my mistake but I cannot see it. 3's look like 8's to me a lot of the times! Please help. I am in Seattle, WA and I attend University of Washington.
