Difficulties with Numbers
Some individuals with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia have difficulties with Numbers. They may have problems learning and remembering timetables, completing mental calculations and find mathematical symbols confusing. Tasks involving sequencing can also present difficulties.
Students with Dyspraxia have associated Visual Perceptual Differences and do not always find methods such as number lines suit their Learning Styles. Very often such students have well developed ‘higher order’ maths skills. Working Memory Differences, which are associated with a wide range of specific learning difficulties, can mean that students find interpreting word problems in Maths a challenge.
You may also have heard of the term ‘Dyscalculia’. It is used to refer to individuals who have a difficulty understanding simple number concepts. There is some disagreement as to what dyscalculia and assessment for dyscalculia is in its infancy, however it is recognised as a Learning Difficulty and defined as: a condition that affects the ability to acquire arithmetical skills.
