dyscalculia/dyslexia resources  
An authorial friend of mine is looking for some assistance, detailed below:
I am actively seeking – or, I will be soon – people with dyscalculia and/or dyslexia, or who are highly knowledgeable about either, who would be willing to read a to-be-published work of YA contemporary realistic fiction, approximately 63,000 words (250 manuscript pages) long, and give me feedback on whether my representation of characters with the same is accurate and respectful. I am willing to pay any appropriate candidates for this work. If you know anyone who might be eligible/interested, would you please let me know? Regarding timing: the manuscript isn't ready for reading now, nor will it be until I'm done with another revision. Not sure when that will be, but hopefully this summer. I will provide more information about timing as soon as I have it myself.

If you are or know someone who might be able to help, please respond and I will put her in touch with you. Feel free to forward this to other people or venues who might be relevant.
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

I don't have any recommendations, but I have to say I think it's awesome that the author is asking for expert assistance.

Hi there. At long last, I just sent you a message about this -- check your lj inbox if you're still interested. And thanks!

have the requisite expertise
A colleague forwarded your request to me, and I'd be happy to consider a proposal. I'm a clinical psychologist and educational therapist, with plenty of experience with the various academic and social manifestations of learning disabilities. Best way to contact me (I don't use LJ) is through email: aimee@davincilearning.org
