I`m back! lol. I was wondering, does dyscalculia sometimes mess with your speach and thoughts? Alot of times i jsut randomly blank out. And I mean completely! like, i have to ask people to repeat what they say if they are talking to me. And when I speak, alot of times I stutter. Like for instance- the other day i was talking to my brother and i accedently said " cl-cl-cl-clean!" and sometimes i think someone said something to me and say " wait what did you say?" and they actually didn`t say anything. sorry this is so long! thanks for reading! - I may

Imayhavedyscalculia,
I have more forgetfulness now than I used to. But, if you are a young person, and if this has come on quickly,... that's a bit alarming. Forgive me for suggesting this, as I have no medical knowledge or training at all, but the possibility of a tumor occurs to me. Might you get further physical testing? - jus'

An issue with this is that my parents aren`t the kind of people who you can say " hey mom i think i have a brain tumor" explain your symptoms and they will be like " nah your probably fine I think your just tired". so...yeah. The only reason why they beleived I might have Dyscalculia is because they found out about the disorder in the first place. thank u!

It's good that you've learned to do research on whatever you are curious about. You were born at home and you've never been to a doctor. Are your parents inclined toward using natural remedies whenever possible? I just now came across an online article saying that strokes in young children, though very rare, can cause difficulty finding words and learning disabilities. The site has approval from Australia's Victorian government's department of health. You might as well read about 'stroke', too, while you are at it. ;) - jus'

Hmm... The only symptoms i would have of a stroke are 1) speech (2 dyscalculia 3) blanking out. I do need glasses...but Idt that would be conected to stroke because my dad and moms side both have glasses. I do get dizzy sometimes..but I don`t eat very healthy.. ( Blushing)...well, maybe my DR will find something....idk. Hopefully not. thank you!!!

You're welcome! That's so cool that your grandma works at a natural health store. Yes, you would probably know if you'd had a stroke. But the link says, "Most cases occur in children under two years of age.", so if it happens when a child is so young, there might not be a memory of it. And, many strokes are not huge events.

There are herbs that support the strengthening of blood vessels. I've taken these herbs myself. Your grandmother might know of something along these lines that you could take. - jus'

Hi there,

As a young child, DS stuttered occasionally. He would get very excited and be unable to find the words he needed to speak. To this day, he will mispronounce a word with something that sounds very similar. These symptoms are consistent with his dyslexia.

Due to slow processing speed and poor working memory, I could readily see a person stuttering on occasion and forgetting. At your age, certain facts and information probably don't interest you.

An assessment from a qualified tester would benefit you.

I don't know if for me - or in general - speech issues and math LD are directly intertwined but I was born several months prematurely and had speech and language problems for which I was in Special Ed for many years. Speech still does not come easily to me and I tend to prefer to use my hands.

Speech issues are often an early "soft sign" that a child may eventually develop learning disabilities.

I was in 10th grade before I learned to read out loud without stuttering.

I've always had problems with speech and hearing. I also tend to stutter and stumble over words and have to ask people to repeat things several times because my brain refused to sort what they said into anything comprehensible. Blanking out is not unusual for me either. When I got my diagnosis, I noticed that in the breakdown of the scores I had comparatively low processing speed, working memory, and oral language scores. So I chalk the speech and hearing problems up to that. I think it does have something to do with dyscalculia, since poor processing speed and working memory can contribute to problems with math. Or at least that was the impression I got.
