Dyscalculia Evaluations

Dyscalculia is a learning difference that affects an individual’s ability to understand math, learn basic math facts, and perform math procedures. A neuropsychological evaluation can help to understand root causes of the struggles, provide a diagnosis if appropriate,and set up supports and accommodations.

What is Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia is a learning difference that results in trouble with math. Those with dyscalculia may have difficulties learning basic math facts, solving math problems, or understanding math concepts.

Symptoms of Dyscalculia

Children and adults with dyscalculia may show signs such as:

  • Difficulty solving math problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division
  • Difficulty counting or estimating quantities
  • Difficulty determining which number is larger or smaller
  • Difficulty estimating time or distance
  • Difficulty calculating percentages
  • Difficulty counting change
  • Difficulty managing finances or maintaining bookkeeping records
  • Avoidance and/or anxiety around math related tasks.

What Causes Dyscalculia

Many learning differences are due to the unique structures and networks within our brains. Dyscalculia can be hereditary, meaning one or more family members may have had similar math difficulties.
