"Dyscalculia is a learning issue that causes serious math difficulties. It isn’t as well-known as dyslexia. However, some researchers now think it may be almost as common." - Amanda Morin, Understood.org
Dyscalculia is defined as a brain-based condition that makes it hard to make sense of numbers and math concepts.
Dycalculia can also be referred to as math dylexia.
Children with this disorder have to work very hard to learn and memorize basic number facts.
The situation that occurs from this disorder is kids missing the logic behind the math they're doing. Thus, they may know what to do in math class but they don't understand why they're doing it.
The situation can be reversed. Kids may understand the logic behind the math but aren't sure how and when to apply their knowledge to solving problems.
