This bring bad memories ! I read numbers backward and didn't find out until I was about 14 yo . So I did really bad in math in grade school , my teacher would put a math problem on the blackboard and I could never get it right . The teacher called on me b/c she knew I wasn't able to do math. She kept me after school once and told my older sister came looking for me and my b1cth of a teacher told my sister she is having a bed brought upstairs so your sister can sleep here tonight ! I hope schools do a better job in helping kids with this problem today !

I have diagnosed dyscalculia or math LD <among likely other LD's> , and the graphic was such a "YES- THAT'S IT" moment when I first saw it, so thought I'd share.
I didn't learn to tell time or count money til high school, among many other dysc.-related experiences. and various bad memories.

I don't know how to use a ruler and have never worn a watch.

I still count on my fingers.
:ty:/thanks for your comments!

Sequencing is part of the phonological loop (part of working memory) mine is affected by APD. I have a very difficult time with sequencing days of the week, months, analog clocks, directions with multiple tasks and telling stories with the events in order.

yes, I really do rely on the digital clocks!

earlier in the Fall I was helping my hub with some lawn clean up. I was holding a large, wide shovel designed more for brush, he was using a broom to move debris from a particular tree we have in the front yard, onto the shovel. He wanted me to me to move in a certain way and I was having hard time processing it. i heard him and it was like one-step thing but what he said to make no sense. it took a few minutes of him repeating it and showing me what he wanted me to do-


the music thing, caz- i have no musical ability at all

A friends daughter had a terrible time learning to tell time with the old analog clocks. I do not know if she ever mastered it into adulthood but did go to the digital for everyday use in a watch. This was long enough ago that I do not remember if she had the other problems you guys have posted about.

Analog clock and overall time difficulties <having a sense of time, understanding "what time something comes on tv" for example, or "5 minutes before vs after" - are all common issues with people withy math LD or dyscalculia. My personal biggest issue of those examples has been the clock thing

I remember very well -trying- to understand the whole round-faced clock concept and having absolutely NO clue, the clock might as well have had nothing on it all, or been in all Thai, for all I could reason it. I could visually see the clock and the things on it but they made no sense and no one who tried could explain to me in a way that I could understand. And I didn't know how to explain what I was missing, i always had trouble as a child with expressing all the ways in which I was having trouble processing information.
