Dyscalculia is a disorder similar to dyslexia. The difference, it deals with the brain’s ability to process mathematics and problem solving. The research is not as far advanced as dyslexia. Researchers are currently creating processes and theories to outline parameters and diagnosis for the identification of dyscalculia.

As students get older, they will need to be able to maintain bank accounts, compare value when purchasing items, calculate tips for services as well as prepare recipes and perform other daily activities.- Amy Vils
