Dyscalculia Assessment development

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Researchers lead by Flavia H. Santos set out to develop a Developmental Dyscalculia Assessment:

Developmental Dyscalculia (DD) signifies a failure in representing quantities, which impairs the performance of basic math operations and schooling achievement during childhood. The lack of specificity in assessment measures and respective cut-offs are the most challenging factors to identify children with DD, particularly in disadvantaged educational contexts. This research is focused on a numerical cognition battery for children, designed to diagnose DD through 12 subtests.
