Retrieval or Counting; New study, not even open

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Researchers are planning a project for the following reason:

Researchers in numerical cognition usually think that the greatest and most common difficulty in children suffering from dyscalculia is retrieval of arithmetic facts from long-term memory. However, we have recently shown that retrieval might not be the optimum strategy in mental arithmetic. In fact, expert adults would rather solve simple problems such as 3 + 2 by automated and unconscious procedures. Therefore, we hypothesize that children with dyscalculia might not present deficit in retrieval but, instead, in counting procedure automatization.

Very interesting but it will take a few years to complete. We will follow this.

Learning disabilities in prison

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

It is generally acknowledged that between 5 and
10% of adults who offend have learning disabilities,
compared to slightly more than 2% of the general
population (Department of Health, 2001).
Around a quarter of children (under 18 years) who
offend have very low IQs of less than 70 (Harrington
and Bailey et al, 2005). This does not mean that
around a quarter of children who offend have learning
disabilities, but they will have support needs similar to
those of people with learning disabilities.

Stop the comparing method

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Traditional definitions of Developmental Dyscalculia state that a child must substantially underachieve on mathematical abilities tests relative to the level expected for the given age, education and intelligence. However, current
cognitive developmental neuropsychological studies suggest that not only the core numerical but also the cognitive skills of children with developmental
dyscalculia present deficits.
