What is Dyscalculia

I can remember it was like yesterday the day my grade ten math teacher saying she was so proud of me for getting perfect on a math quiz. I was so happy because I struggled in math and till that point I never got perfect on a math test.

I know you are thinking what's the big deal. Hey a win is a win an I will celebrate it.

Although math is not my strongest subject in school for many other individuals doing simple calculations, mental math is a big hurdle for them. Often the discussion on learning disability (LD) centres around literacy skills, few people are aware that there are leading disabilities that impact math skills.

Dyscalculia, is the a learning disability that impacts and individuals ability to do math calculations. Characterize by the difficulties of making sense of numbers and math concepts.
