Hi everyone! A quick background. I am Mysti, mother to three kids (see siggy). Back story - Madison has always seemed to struggle with math, she was late learning numbers (but not letters) read fast and with ease, but struggled to implement lessons in math. We homeschooled through a charter for many years, and when I mentioned my concerns, I was shoved aside, they said it was developmental, not disability etc. So, I said enough is enough when she struggled so much in 3rd grade. She UNDERSTANDS the concepts, but cannot memorize the math (even basic). She barely has under 4 in the concepts of addition memorized. She is FINALLY able to 'count on', but cannot skip count very effectively. She understands how to multiply, but must write out every problem and often her messy handwriting creates a problem when she goes to answer her problems. So, after much testing and fighting for it all the way we have been told Dyscalculia with visual-processing disability. Which, the psy (NOT the school psy .. sigh, another story). Says is NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD). It makes a world of sense, funny how things just click when a diagnosis is given huh? My daughter does not seem to have the social issues that hold hands with NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD), though she is only 9, but has all of the visual issues! She was administered the WISC-IV and her verbal comp score was 104 (61st percentile) 77 in perceptual reasoning (6th percentile). It is my understanding that there should not be a difference in those scores, and that discrepancy often alerts to NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD), or like issues. The psy i'm speaking with now say that's a rather large difference. Thoughts? Does anyone else have NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) and dyscalculia as a result? (and if so, are the social issues there or not, did they not become apparent immediately?) *side note, Madi does seem to catch inferences, and has the ability to be sarcastic etc.* I'm just delving into this world of NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) ... any and all info advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
