Research shows lack of Dyscalculia Awereness and screening

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Dr Kinga Morsanyi and the team from the School of Psychology studied the mathematics performance of 2,421 primary school children over a number of school years.

The researchers said they expected the number of pupils with dyscalculia to be similar to those with dyslexia, however from the children studied, 108 children had received an official diagnosis of dyslexia, but just one child had officially been diagnosed with dyscalculia.

Based on the results of the study, the researchers found 112 children who are likely to have the condition.

Dr Morsanyi said: “In society, there is sadly a widespread notion that you need a special talent to be good at maths, and that struggling with maths is normal for some people, but this is not the case and it’s not something we would accept if a pupil was unable to read.”

The study, which was funded by The Nuffield Foundation, found that in almost all cases children who appear to have dyscalculia are not being diagnosed.

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The case for labeling is made in the article in our link for today:

Labels are tools. Labels are only words to help us define and understand phenomena we see in learning development.

Decode the teacher

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The other day a parent approached me and said they needed an evaluation for their child because the school/teacher had said the child had low IQ and ADD. At least they didn’t say the child is stupid and doesn’t pay attention but it is clear that the school probably has not evaluated a learning disability.

They should be referred to http://DyscalculiaAware.org to get an awareness course and the parents can go to https://DyscalculiaTesting.com to get a Math and Dyscalculia Screening test done quick and at low cost as a start.

Remarkable today I get the email from the understood organization, talking about the language teachers use and what it could mean for parents.

Testing for Dyscalculia does not have to break the bank

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

If you think your kid might have a learning disability in math, the first step is to talk to her teacher. Learning disabilities like dyscalculia are diagnosed with a psycho-educational assessment performed by a psychologist. This can be done within the school system (although wait times can be long) or it can be done privately (prices typically range from $1,500 to $2,500).

Dyscalculia Services has developed an affordable way to diagnose the condition with their online Math and Dyscalculia Screening Test.

Even when a full test needs to be done their prices do not get anywhere near the amounts mentioned in the article in the link.
