Adult Math Education
"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.
