Dyscalculia is a specific learning difficulty in mathematics and numbers. People with dyscalculia struggle with processing numbers, maths concepts and the symbols and functions required when solving maths problems. Much like dyslexia, dyscalculia can impact learners in a number of different ways and can vary significantly from person to person.
