A bit late in the day Patrick but there are some useful free tools mentioned
on Dystalk http://www.dystalk.com/resources/tools

The site also has a set of videos on the subject but they are mainly for
younger children. However, we have a University Centre that specialises in
the subject at Loughborough called The Dyscalculia and Dylexia Interest
Group (DIGG) http://ddig.lboro.ac.uk/ but it does not appear to be working
at the moment so maybe the Brain HE site will help a little

Best wishes E.A.

Subject: [Athen] Question About Dyscalculia From Wyoming

Hi everyone,

I just had a question come in from Wyoming, asking about what tools
are available for students with dyscalculia at the post-sec. level.

Dyscalculia is an area I don't know much about, let alone what
relevant provisions there are under Wyoming disability law.

So, with all the Rocky Mountain folks around here, I thought someone
might be able to send some pointers. I can either fwd the answers or,
if you don't mind, put you in touch directly with the person asking
the questions.

So, we're looking for both tools that help dyscalculia (talking
calculators? other?), as well as self-help / advocacy resources.

Thanks very much in advance, & very sorry that I won't be making my
own trip to the Rockies next month.
