A Candid Interview of Life with Dyscalculia

Show Notes:

Imagine not being able to tell time, count money, or do basic math in your head. For people with dyscalculia, these everyday tasks can be a real challenge. In this video, we’re going to take a deep dive into dyscalculia and explore its causes, symptoms, and potential solutions.

Michelle Steiner joins Tonya to talk about her experiences with dyscalculia and other invisible disabilities and how she’s learned to embrace the disabilities and achieve success in life.

Welcome to the Water Prairie Chronicles, a podcast created to encourage and support parents of special needs children. I’m Tonya Wollum, and I’m glad you’re here.

Tonya Wollum


Tonya Wollum is a disability advocate and host of the Water Prairie Chronicles podcast which connects special needs parents with resources to help them navigate parenting a child with a disability. She is the mother of 2 college-age children who have each grown up with a disability. That experience, along with a background in education, led her to create the Water Prairie Chronicles to help share what she has learned with parents of younger children to help them know how to advocate for their children.
