I was looking at site on the web trying to find some help for myself, im in college and as an adult i can find lots of help for children but none for adults, this is extremely frustrating, im looking for help with the problems that i do have dyslexic, dycalculia and dysgrahic, completey frustrated with all hwo i have talked with thus far who give me facts and figures and statistics and are unable to give me problem solving ideas to help me adapt, i know there is no cure all for this but there has to be a way to overcome it. Im in algebra1 and going into 2 im stuggling to maintain a c and that is good considering i have never had this type of math before because all thru grade shcool, high school never once did they pick up on it they just shoved me into a remedial reading class , speech class, and when i went to jr high and high school the same and i had a teachre that sent me to 3rd grade to relearn writting skills, a remedial math class sent me to 4th grade to do time tables and to learn to tell time, and history teacher that made me go thru 1st grade to relearn how to read non of which this has helped just embarassed me tremendously, and now i am in college took a english comp class skidding by with a c also speech however i have an a goofey as this sounds i have raised the math and the english up from an f for whicth my math instructor found the said problem then went for testing all they did was test and i recieved more time on my math test, but that isnt really much help i want to learn how to adapt so i can be a success for once in my life in the academic world and go onto what i really wish to be in life, i have one degree it is in culinary arts but again that is like 2nd nature to me but this basics elude me please tell me about where or what i should do to find some help........i trully appreciate your time and thank you for your kind help.
