    To be fair, I never mastered my tables either, although I remember spending ages trying. I got a masters degree in engineering and worked in the space industry. I think I have pretty good number sense, though

    My son has struggled with learning his math facts, too. I was never very good at it either (so many hours of drill with my parents, and I still can't tell you what 9x6 is). For a while I wondered if he had dyscalculia. But after learning recently about my 19-yo nephew's lack of number sense (he even struggles to count money), I stopped worrying so much about DS.

    I grew up with dyscalculia and eventually got an engineering degree...

    I went to public school, but my mom spent two years drilling multiplication tables in the car, at home or at the grocery store with me. I still have a hard time remembering numbers (it takes me about 2 years to remember a new phone number) and I have a very hard time telling right from left, but with lots of repetition and help it works.
