"In the world of numbers, dyscalculia may present challenges, but within each equation lies a story of perseverance, innovation, and the unique brilliance of seeing the world through a different lens."

What is Dyscalculia?

According to the British Dyslexia Association (BDA): Dyscalculia is a specific and persistent difficulty in understanding numbers which can lead to diverse range of difficulties with mathematics. It will be unexpected in relation to age, level of education and experience and occurs across all ages and abilities.

"Mathematics difficulties are best thought of as a continuum, not a distinct category, and they have many causal factors. Dyscalculia falls at the one end of the spectrum and will be distinguishable from other maths issues due to the severity of difficulties with number sense, including subtilising, symbolic and non-symbolic magnitude comparison, and ordering . It can occur singly but often co-occurs with other specific learning difficulties, mathematics anxiety and medical conditions".
