Dyscalculia is a brain-based condition that makes it hard to make sense of numbers and math concepts. Some kids have trouble learning to count, making connections between number symbols (5) and the word (five) and connecting number to a real-life situation. As students grow older, they have difficulties in recalling math signs (+, x, etc.), telling time and understanding math related words (greater than, less than, etc.). Other kids understand the logic behind the math but aren’t sure how and when to apply their knowledge to solving problems.
