Susan,
I have also read that dyslexia is the most common type of learning disability. Does anyone know of further research on dyscalculia?

And also note- the article does include a link to the original journal article: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6033/1049

I wonder where the conclusion "common as dyslexia" comes from, because I have often read differently, at least when it comes down to having a fundamental disability in working with quantitative concepts; that's much rarer.

Struggling with getting meaning out of the symbols used for math would almost certainly be at least as common, though.

Hi all,


Here is a link to an interesting article entitled Research into Dyscalculia Doesn't Add Up :

http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2011/05/27/3229042.htm


For more information on Dyscalculia go to the LINCS Special Collection at:

http://lincs.ed.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/ProgramLD


We have not focused much of our discussion on Dyscalculia. It seems to get much less attention than Dyslexia. Why is that????
