What is Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia is a specific learning disorder involving difficulties with learning and acquiring mathematical skills, in other words a mathematics disorder.

Co-existing disorders may include: dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia, ASD (autism).

An estimated 3-8% of the population may be diagnosed with dyscalculia and between 15-20% of the students may have mathematics difficulties.

Students with dyscalculia have great difficulties with the basic four operations in math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), a poor ‘number sense’ and very often math anxiety.
