It could be dyscalculia, the forgotten math learning disability.
When you notice that your child is having some trouble with their math, the first thing you need to do is get some more information about it. A good start is to do our free Dyscalculia Screener. The outcome will give you a first glance at what could be happening with your child’s math troubles. Next you can visit our mostly free site https://DyscalculiaScreener.org. That site gives you, in addition to the free screener, a number of grade specific screeners so you can check to see if your child is up to the grade that they are assigned to at this moment. If the scores on the Dyscalculia Screener and the scores on the grade specific screener show that your child indeed has symptoms of Dyscalculia you can do the Math and Dyscalculia Screening Test (MDST) and for $27.50 you will receive a five-page report that details the child’s level in the various math operations and also a reflection on how they did on numeracy and other related items, like processing speed.
Once also this report shows possible signs of Dyscalculia, it is time to request a full diagnostic assessment by your school or we can do one for you by video conference, email us for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call.
