calculatorThe DfE defines dyscalculia as: ‘A condition that affects the ability to acquire arithmetical skills. Dyscalculic learners may have difficulty understanding simple number concepts, lack an intuitive grasp of numbers, and have problems learning number facts and procedures. Even if they produce a correct answer or use a correct method, they may do so mechanically and without confidence.’

Research suggests that 40-50% of dyslexics show no signs of dyscalculia. Children with dyscalculia can learn the sequence of counting but may have difficulty counting back or counting on in 2s and 3s etc.

How can you tell if they might be dyscalculic? Look out for the following signs, but remember: not all children have the same cluster of difficulties and abilities and children who have to have dyscalculia do not necessarily have dyslexia.

Take a look at our checklist - remember this is not a diagnostic list but designed to give you guidance when observing a child
