Dyscalculia is a learning difficulty regarding mathematics. It is estimated that between 3-6% of the population has developmental dyscalculia, and it is likely to affect both boys and girls. Children who suffer with Dyscalculia often struggle with difficulty in recognising number patterns, telling the time, money and estimating logically.
A key indicator for dyscalculia is children (or adults) who are unable to instantly recognise numbers of objects, for example five counters. If the child is unable to instantly recognise five counters without counting, testing for dyscalculia could be extremely beneficial. This is called subitising.
