Hi All, I'm glad I have found this site. I'm 26 and have struggled with every symptom mentioned for as long as I can remember. At school I did well in subject such as English and History. However I genuinely struggled with maths, any sport that involved coordination such as tennis. I can't do any kind of aerobics, so Zumba is out lol. I chose not to study any subject that involved any level of maths. I have failed my driving test twice as I really struggle with spatial awareness. Today I sat a police entrance test which involved non verbal testing including working out sequences with shapes, I only managed to complete half by the time it was finished and even then I doubt I got barely any correct. I found I couldn't focus. Again while studying and doing part-time work I struggled when doing bar work with stock taking and the balancing the tills. I have absolutely no sense of direction. I really think I have each symptom at quite a pronounced level- other than a problem with analogue clocks.
I was wondering if anyone knew of any testing centres in Scotland? I have felt ashamed for years.

Sorry for the huge rant.

welcome, misskp!

I found this site: http://www.dysgui...
<it does specifically discuss dyscalculia and talks about assessments>

and this from Edinburgh Napier Uni: http://staff.napi...culia.aspx
<another potential source of referral even if you can't get there or they don't offer any testing, you could call/text/email>

and here's a general UK site mentioning a few resources, including the website of famed UK expert Brian Butterworth: http://www.aboutd...urces.html
