Most dyscalculia success stories in the press are of famous people who have been successful despite dyscalculia. Our students aren’t renowned. They are ordinary people who overcame or are in the process of overcoming dyscalculia symptoms and math learning disabilities.
The importance of math
Numeracy is essential for survival in society. Whether in daily living, work, or leisure, we cannot escape the use of numbers. Every job requires math, from farming to rocket science!
The effects of mathematical failure can seriously limit career and life choices. It may shut the door on a student’s vocational dreams and undermine their aspirations to become a teacher, engineer, or doctor. Math is needed no matter the language you speak or the country you live in.
Developmental dyscalculia is a specific, severe, and persistent difficulty in understanding numbers. It affects 3–10% of the population.
Dyscalculia cannot be corrected with medication. Instead, specialized help is required to treat the disorder. Below are stories of ten children who received specialized help and overcame their dyscalculia symptoms.
