My husband and I always joke that I'm dyslexic with numbers. Does number dyslexia actually exist?? I have ADD and I tested as right-brained... could that be a part of it?
Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! I thought I was the only one who had to write my home phone number on the edge of my checkbook...and the only one in our entire county who believes the main highway is 214 [it's 412]. Had the same school experience you have had...tested in the 2nd percentile in math/logic on my grad school exam [GRE] and was invited into the dean's office because she couldn't believe I existed...that percentile means 98% of the entire country taking the exam did better than I did. Is there numerical dyslexia? Let's hope so...it may become the Disease of the Week someday and get its own telethon. Yo, Jerry Lewis, we neeeeeeeeed money [as long as we don't have to count it ourselves, right?].
yes you can be dislexic with numbers my bff have a cousin and he is six and he can read but the numbers are backwards to him like he i wouldask him what is this number 9601 and he would say 0196 so yuo are not the only one
The inability to deal with numbers is called dyscalcula. It is a rarely diagnosed learning disability. There may be Special Ed specialists in your area who work with adults. Maybe the local school district has info.
