    Hi @isteele983 :) 

    Many people with dyslexia also struggle with maths. Are you currently attending a school or college?

    Hi and welcome 

    Do you get any extra support in school if not I would ask for it 

    Another option would be private tuition

    Yes, I think it'd be worth speaking to your teachers @isteele983. Do you get any support from the Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCo)? Do you know whether you have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)? Getting some extra support in school could help a lot, such as making sure your teachers are aware of any extra needs you might have, getting extra tuition, having extra time in exams, and so on.
