About Dyscalculia

Home Knowledge Base About Dyscalculia


Math difficulties often go unnoticed, or unserved during the early years, more than reading or writing difficulties, even though approximately 6% of children in school have math difficulties.

However, as students move up in the grades, it is expected in American schools that students will be proficient in math. Students must be able to pass math classes, state testing in math, and be math literate to graduate from high school. And yet, the fact is for those who struggle in math, the foundation for math skills were never achieved.

The foundations in math must be developed in order for students to be proficient and functional in math, just as foundations in language must be developed in order for an individual to be proficient in reading and spelling. A classroom teacher or homeschooling parent cannot build on a foundation that is not there.

Dyscalculia is the term used to described an individual who may have difficulty understanding numbers and learning math facts. In fact, individuals with dyscalculia may struggle with a number of areas related to math.
