WHAT IS DYSCALCULIA?
Symptoms of Dyscalculia:
Educator and dyscalculia
specialist Ronit Bird lays out the symptoms in The Dyscalculia Toolkit, a
book written to help teachers and parents whose children are struggling
with the disorder. Bird advises caregivers to watch for many subtle
indicators, including:

Difficulty learning to count

Trouble recognizing printed numbers

Trouble organizing things in a logical way

Using fingers to count out math solutions, long after peers have stopped using this method

Trouble recalling basic math facts

Difficulty linking numbers and symbols to amounts and directions

Difficulty making sense of money (For example, handing a cashier a fistful of bills and change rather than counting it out)

Unable to tell time on an analog clock

Difficulty immediately sorting out right from left

Trouble with recognizing patterns and sequencing numbers

Struggles with math vocabulary
