Dyscalculia refers to a wide range of mathematics related learning disabilities, ranging from an inability to understand the meaning of numbers, to an inability to apply mathematical principles to solve problems. It often involves difficulties with time, measurement, and spatial reasoning.
Dyscalculia can be difficult to diagnose, as the underlying reasons for troubles with mathematics can be challenging to identify. Apart from dyscalculia, these difficulties may be due to lack of motivation, attentional difficulties, anxiety, or even inadequate instruction. Our psychologists enjoy employing their specialised knowledge and skills in discovering the complexities involved in each child’s unique situation in order to make the appropriate diagnosis.
