Way off topic

This post has a content I don’t usually write about…

This post isn’t about Jesus – though He certainly is a part of the healing process.

This post is about awareness of a condition known as “DYSCALCULIA” and the effects it is likely to have on children in and outside of school. 

 

 

It’s not just about math and not understanding numbers though that is always the main focus. This is about how dyscalculia flows into all areas of a child’s life, how it can create anxiety issues and social issues and the feeling of never being good enough… to even simply “cope”.

This article is from a website called UNDERSTOOD.org and this particular article addresses most of the issues that my daughter struggles with in daily life – despite not yet having reached her tween years. 

I urge you to click the link and give yourself a chance to understand that dyscalculia is a big deal – and if not found and tested in the early stages it will likely affect a child throughout life and not just in school related situations.

Dyscalculia isn’t as known as dyslexia. Perhaps because the school system places a lot of emphasis on the language arts – but more and more kids will experience dyscalculia in years to come, though I have no way of backing up that statement, I urge any parent – AND school system – to pay close attention.

Thank you.

  1. Hello! I must say, I really love reading your blog. I find it inspiring and full of hope. Although, in the past months I haven’t had the time to browse the blogs I follow because of work, as soon as I have the time, I do read the posts, like right now. Thank you for keeping me inspired and pumped up in my faith with Jesus.

    1. Please spread the word 🙏 – it’s not unknown but it’s not among the top things teachers look for – and many kids just gets the “lazy” stamp. So please spread awareness as much as possible. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate it. Lord bless you.
