VISITOR: Our 17 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed with Dyscalculia. She has strong reading and writing skills. She is currently testing at a 4th grade math level. Vocational rehabilitation service will provide math intervention services to work on her math skills gap. We are searching for curriculum, software, and methodologies that would help our daughter. Any recommendations?
DYSCALCULIA.ORG: Absolutely. She should cover the state mandated curriculum using the ALEKS.com program in order to get her high school diploma and get through the college math required for her degree. ALEKS is the most appropriate for credit recovery. Here are other resources but use ALEKS primarily. ALEKS covers elementary, MS, HS, and college math. Your state rehab department or your school district should pay for the individual subscription which is only $20 month and covers access to all content in the system. A teacher or district or school representative should supervise progress and agree to grant credit toward the diploma or degree based on her progress in the ALEKS curriculum.
