Hello to you all!
I’m a scared mum of 11 yo. Two weeks ago my daughter suddenly showed the symptoms of a stroke and was rushed to the hospital. Left side of body was paralysed, vision blurred (she was asking why it is snowing inside in the room), and strange enough, she was not able to remember or recognise any numbers.
Stroke was waved right away by the instant CT scan, then the neurologists took over. The MRI scan found two small leisions on the left side of the brain. Lumbar punction and evoked tests had been done and we are waiting for results now.
I’m quite certain that the final diagnosis will be MS as it would explain short term memory loss episodes for past two years, being very slow on schoolwork and other minor symptoms – now they all are lining up.
She is recovering now – still dizzy but able to walk straight and general confusion is gone. Language skills and handwriting havent changed so I do not predict any new problems other than being slow. She also remembers some geometry like Pythagoras’, but simple arithmetic is gone.
My question is – how to start the math again. She has difficulties even adding 2 and 2, and is unable to find the right answer taking 5 from 9. So we must start from the year one with math again. Are there any technics how to do it? Any helpful links?
