What Is Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia is commonly known as the ‘maths equivalent of dyslexia’.

According to Professor Brian Butterworth, Professor of Neuropsychology at University College, London, dyscalculia means that, ‘you can see the numbers but you don’t know what they mean.  Your brain simply has no concept of  ‘threeness’ or ‘fourness’.’

Studies suggest that this is a problem that affects about 6.5% of the population and that around 40% of dyslexics also have dyscalculia.
