Dyscalculia is a lifelong condition that makes it hard for kids to perform math-related tasks. It’s not as well known or understood as dyslexia. But some experts believe it’s just as common. It occurs in children with dyslexia about 30% of the time.
Dyscalculia is more than just having trouble with one concept in a math curriculum. It is when children truly struggle with all aspects of math, and understanding its basic concepts and the language associated with math to indicate whether a problem requires addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Children with dyscalculia have trouble interpreting the language of math, and have a very hard time remembering the orderly processes needed to carry or borrow in addition and subtraction, and to do compute a long-division problem.
Kids with dyscalculia can also have trouble memorizing math facts, and it may take years of repetition to memorize them.
We help kids with dyscalculia by using the Math U See curriculum.
