When Michelle was in primary school, she struggled to understand and remember math concepts such as multiplication, division, and fractions. She also had a tough time understanding the difference between big and small.
“I had no idea I was dyscalculic. I just assumed I was as stupid as my math teachers made me out to be. My mother was always sad because she noticed I couldn’t read the analogue clock,” she recalls.
Dyscalculia is more than just a difficulty with math. It’s more severe than making mistakes when adding numbers or reversing digits when writing something down.
