HELP! 17-year-old with 4th grade Math level

VISITOROur 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.ORGAbsolutely. 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. 

These links contain information on remedial resources:

If you give more detail on her situation I can further advise you. Is she in high school? Has she graduated? Does she have a diploma or certificate or GED? What are her future career plans? Has she ever had an IEP?

  1. We are in basically the same situation as the above post. Our 17 year old has just been diagnosed with Dyscalculia. She is on the extremely high scale of Visual learner and is extremely intelligent. What are the best ways to get her through her High School math (we dropped her Algebra II class last semester but she still needs to complete it in her Senior year). She is no longer in traditional high school, but is finishing her high school through a modified online program which has tutoring/testing facilities. She would like to go to college but is afraid of the college math. She is highly intelligent and a hard worker so we don't want this disability to limit her potential.

    1. She can go to college but will need her diagnosis in hand to get academic adjustments and accommodations for her math requirements. She should attempt to complete these requirements using the alternative paths here: http://www.dyscalculia.org/college-dyscalculia/algebra-paths
