What is Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia is a learning disability that impairs an individual’s ability to understand everyday maths concepts, make sense of numbers, and memorize formulas. It includes all types of maths problems ranging from an inability to understand the meaning of numbers, to an inability to apply mathematical principles to solve problems.

Symptoms of Dyscalculia

Symptoms of dyscalculia show up in the classroom and beyond. They affect how your child will play with friends. Struggles with maths are often easily dismissed especially if your child seems to do well in other subjects but can lead to low self-esteem, anxiety and missed opportunities if they are not dealt with as early as possible.
Typical symptoms include:
  • Difficulty counting backwards.
  • Difficulty remembering 'basic' facts.
  • Slow to perform calculations.
  • Weak mental arithmetic skills.
  • A poor sense of numbers and estimation.
  • Difficulty in understanding place value.
  • Addition is often the default operation.
  • High levels of mathematics anxiety.

What is the root cause?

The brain is functioning differently in dyscalculic individuals. There are many possible causes, including both genetic and environmental. The cause for one individual may not be the same as for another.

Genetic causes include known genetic disorders such as Turner's syndrome,  Velocardiofacial syndrome or Williams syndrome. In addition studies suggest that there are genes present in the general population which increase the risk of dyscalculia.

Known environmental causes include alcohol consumption during pregnancy, and pre-term birth. Both of these can result in under-development of the brain.
Dyscalculia often co-occurs with other learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and specific language impairment. This is probably because both environmental and genetic factors which affect brain development are likely to act on several areas of the brain at once

Can dyscalculia be cured?

There are no medications for dyscalculia. But medication can be a treatment for other issues, like ADHD or ADD and anxiety that often co-occur with learning and attention issues. Learn about different strategies, supports and therapies that can help children with dyscalculia.

How does dyscalculia affect a person life?

Dyscalculia is a specific learning disability, a mathematical learning disability. Dyscalculia has severe difficulty in making arithmetical calculations. Children with dyscalculia fall behind early in primary school, and may develop anxiety with a strong dislike of Mathematics. Dyscalculia may affect individuals over their life span.
