What is Dyscalculia? 

Dyscalculia is defined as a failure to achieve in mathematics commensurate with chronological age, normal intelligence, and adequate instruction. It is marked by difficulties with:  visualization;  visual-spatial perception, processing and discrimination;  counting;  pattern recognition;  sequential memory;  working-memory for numbers;  retrieval of learned facts and procedures;  directional confusion; quantitative processing speed;  kinesthetic sequences;  and perception of time.

Dyscalculia is known by several terms: 

     (1) Specific Learning Disability / Disorder in Mathematics (SLD-Math) 
     (2) Math Learning Disability (MLD)
     (3) Developmental Dyscalculia (DD)
     (4) Acalculia
     (6) Math Dyslexia
     (7) Math Anxiety
     (8) Numerical Impairment
     (9) Number Agnosia
     (10) Nonverbal Learning Disorder / Disability (NLD)
