“But Piglet is so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him when you are not quite sure whether twice seven is twelve or twenty-two.” A.A. Milne
Say it a couple times: DYS-CAL-CUL-IA. It sounds a little different than you think. It is rarer in my school than both Dysgraphia and Dyslexia but I have encountered it. I don't like the definiton for this learning disability so I am on the hunt for a new one. I think it does a diservice to the students who deal with dyscalculia to make it sound comparable to having a weakness in math. It is far more serious for these kids. Math LD's present differently in different people. Dycalculia refers to specific learning disabilities in math. The LD's do not present the same in every child. The strengths and weaknesses of each child must be determined.
