Hi All
I have a teenage daughter who is bright and performing well in general in all subjects at secondary school except Maths. She is very artistic yet slower at grasping the maths concepts and takes longer to finish the maths homework/ coursework. It was suggested to me when she was younger that she may suffer from dyscalculia ( different to dyslexia). She is now 15 but did not understand how to tell the time until she was 10. Has anybody had any experience of this condition? I would be interested to know. Thanks
