Dyscalculia

Students with dyscalculia often struggle with math calculation skills and find difficulty in number representation, number processing, quantifying sets without counting, using nonverbal processes to complete simple numerical operations, and estimating relative magnitudes of sets.  Quantitative reasoning may also be impaired for individuals with dyscalculia.

Here are ways to support students with Dyscalculia:

  • Use visual aids and manipulatives when solving problems.
  • Provide graph paper to help line up numbers and problems and use graphic organizers to help students organize information and break down problems into steps.
  • Highlight key words and numbers on word problems.
