Free Webinar Replay: Understanding Dyscalculia: How to Recognize & Address Math Learning Disabilities – ADDitude

Dyscalculia is a life-long condition that makes math-related tasks arduous and even painful. Though it’s nearly as common as dyslexia (roughly 7% of U.S. students have dyscalculia), this learning disability is neither well known nor fully understood. Students with dyscalculia may struggle with various math concepts and tasks. They may not understand quantities or concepts like biggest vs. smallest. They may not understand that the numeral 5 is the same as the word five. So what are the most common signs of dyscalculia? How can you help a child who is struggling with it? Here, learn about supports and strategies to help students with dyscalculia.
