Screening and Testing for Dyscalculia, a four step process
Dyscalculia is a learning disability that makes it hard to do basic math. It is about as common as dyslexia but not very often recognized or acknowledged, as it is still very young compared to other learning disabilities. Research shows that about 4-7% of the population would have this learning disability. Many people will say things like; “math is just not my thing”, or “she’ll grow over it” without realizing that this is an inborn condition that needs remediation. Not many schools are equipped to do the testing for this learning disability and private screening and testing are expensive.
For this reason Dyscalculia Services offers this site where you can find a range of options to ensure you detect the math learning disability or dyscalculia early in the process.
NEW: We have developed a new tool for you to test. It is the Math Assessment Reasoning Strategies system aimed at finding out what the reasoning strategies are that the children can apply by math operation. It is now open in beta testing at MathStrategy.org
