VISITOR: The math sections of standardized tests such as the GRE and the Praxis is a source of anxiety. I'm afraid of doing so poorly on these that they will negatively affect my applications to graduate school or an educator's license. Are letters from appropriate experts explaining dyscalculia and attestation to me having his learning disorder recognized by universities and boards of education (who grant teaching licenses)? If so, what "expert" do I need to see to make this official?
DYSCALCULIA.ORG: Yes dyscalculia is a recognized learning disability. For help with standardized testing and college issues, see COLLEGE & MATH LD. Notice other links on the side. Here is a sample letter to the college director of disabled student services.
