What is Dyscalculia?


Does your preschool child have trouble learning to count? Does he/she struggle to connect a number to an object? Does your primary school child still use fingers to count, confuse math symbols, and avoid situations that require understanding numbers? Does your secondary school child struggle to understand information on charts and graphs, and has trouble applying maths concepts to money, such as calculating the exact change? All these could be signs of #Dyscalculia, a learning disorder that affects a person’s ability to understand number-based information and math. It is treatable in children because their brains haven’t yet finished developing, making it possible for them to learn skills and develop abilities they need to adapt to this condition. If you think your child has difficulty doing simple math, do consult a doctor for a diagnosis.
