I attended a three day Conference on Dyscalculia and wanted to share with you some fundamental information on this topic. First, for those who have never heard of Dyscalculia, here are two definitions:
Dyscalculia is a condition that affects the ability to acquire mathematical skills. Dyscalculic learners may have a difficulty understanding simple number concepts, lack an intuitive grasp of numbers, and have problems learning number facts and procedures. Even if they produce a correct answer or use a correct method, they may do so mechanically and without confidence (UK) 2001.
Dyscalculia is a developmental, or acquired, disorder that results in an inability to do or learn mathematics, particularly arithmetic. This means difficulties in some or all of the following: mastering simple number concepts, understanding number relationships, understanding spatial relationships and learning algorithms and applying them. It is most commonly revealed through substantially lowered arithmetic achievement, sometimes several years below the appropriate level. Pauline Clayton. Dyslexia Institute/Action
