Dyscalculia and impact on social skills

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The understood organization has a great short story on how Dyscalculia can impact a child’s social skills. The learning disability does not just impact their capability to do basic math, that’s only where it starts but the consequences, certainly when not diagnosed and remediated, stretch wider.

Math shelf a useful program

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A substantial number of childrendtypically those living in lowincome communitiesdstart kindergarten with inadequate mathematics knowledge (Griffin, 2002; Jordan, 2007; Siegler, 2009;
Starkey & Klein, 2008). Effective and scalable mathematics interventions for economically disadvantaged preschoolers are
needed because math knowledge measured at school entry predicts both secondary school academic success and future economic
opportunity (Duncan et al., 2007; Geary, Hoard, Nugent, & Bailey,
2013; Watts, Duncan, Siegler, & Davis-Kean, 2014). This study
tested Math Shelf, a tablet computer curriculum designed to
improve at risk preschoolers’ mathematics performance

The main cause of Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

There is still research necessary to find out exactly where Dyscalculia finds it’s origin:

Two hypotheses attempt to explain the main cause of dyscalculia. The first hypothesis suggests that a problem with the core mechanisms of perceiving (non-symbolic) quantities is the cause of dyscalculia (core deficit hypothesis), while the alternative hypothesis suggests that dyscalculics have problems only with the processing of numerical symbols (access deficit hypothesis). In the present study, the symbolic and non-symbolic numerosity processing of typically developing children and children with dyscalculia were examined with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Control (n=15, mean age: 11.26) and dyscalculia (n=12, mean age: 11.25) groups were determined using a wide-scale screening process.

Assistive Technology and the challenges

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The use of assistive technology has helped many people with learning disabilities cope with their condition. Two issues however continue to play a role here; only one in ten people with learning disabilities gets diagnosed and only one in ten then can afford the cost of assistive technology. This is a larger challenge in Africa at the moment.

Research on Dyscalculia Subtypes

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The new research found two robust subtypes: A slightly impaired subtype and a strongly impaired subtype. Subtypes differed most strongly regarding mathematical abilities, but the analyses suggest that differences in attention could also be a key factor. Therefore, comorbid attention difficulties seem to be a relevant factor that needs to be considered when establishing subtypes. Substantial intelligence differences between dyscalculia subtypes could not be found. Differences in working memory and reading fluency were negligible. Overall, the results seemed to be robust regardless of the diagnostic test used for assessing dyscalculia. When planning interventions for children with Dyscalculia, the existence of a subtype with substantial attention problems should be kept in mind.

CPA (no not the accountant)

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) is a highly effective approach to teaching that develops a deep and sustainable understanding of maths in pupils. Often referred to as the concrete, representational, abstract framework, CPA was developed by American psychologist Jerome Bruner. It is an essential technique within the Singapore method of teaching maths for mastery.
