What is dyscalculia?
In an earlier post, we discussed a bit about dyscalculia and shared a handy infographic. Since we're passionate about math difficulties here at Luminous Learning, we'd love to continue the conversation. So you've heard of dyslexia, but what is this dyscalculia, you ask? Think of it as the dyslexia of math. Not an exact comparison, but just like dyslexia is difficulty with reading, dyscalculia is difficulty with math. The bad news? Dyscalculia hasn't been researched nearly as much as dyslexia, so there's still a great deal we don't know about how the brain understands mathematics. The good news? It's a growing field and new research, interventions, and ideas about dyscalculia are being developed every year.
