I’m unusual in that I have ‘Pure Dyscalculia’, meaning that my language ability is unimpaired. It’s more common to have both. I don’t feel bad about having a slight learning disability however, because I firmly believe in ‘neurodiversity,’ although there are some problems with defining what that actually means.

    1. Sadly I was born too late, to ride the fuck of the “dys” train 🙁

    2. Late twentieth century Europe, the 1980’s, about tea-time. I was put into a ‘remedial’ class for basic no-hopers, despite the fact my English grades were waaay above average. No-one seemed to think it strange that I excelled in English but became totally lost with arithmetic to the point that I had to be streamed into a special class. Even now most people are completely ignorant of Dyscalculia, and have only very basic knowledge about Dyslexia. (Case in point. My computer refuses to recognize the word ‘dyscalculia’ and has underlined it.)

    3. Shoes’ story is remarkably similar to my own, however; I can’t say that I’ve excelled at anything in my life. I too was going through school in the 80’s, and with my difficulties with reading and writing I was bounced from one special class to another. None of them helped. I made it through high school without ever hearing the word Dyslexia. It wasn’t until later in my life, when I went back to college that I finally got the help I needed, and was able to have a positive experience in school.
