Adult Math EducationFiled Under: ADHD and College
"I'm a 33 year-old divorced father of 4 children. I've been diagnosed with ADD. I'm currently taking Ritalin twice daily. The problem is right from childhood I could never understand math. My math level is about grade 2 and my other subjects are grade 12. I'm in a L.B.S. course in college (learning basic skills) I just wanted to know how to overcome this problem. Thank you." - TA, Ontario
Contact the special services coordinator or sometimes called Office for Disabilities at your university. These services are offered throughout Canada and the United States on a university or college campus.
These are trained professionals who understand and work with learning disabilities. They can guide you to a variety of support services, tutoring, further testing and even set up someone to teach you some different math strategies based on your strengths.
Never give up; you are a model for your 4 children.
Dr. Clare Jones was an educational consultant in Scottsdale, Arizona, respected throughout the psychological community for her work with ADHD children and adults. She passed away in late 2006 and is truly missed.
