Sometimes when your child is struggling with math it may be termed “number dyslexia” but is that a real thing? It’s true that dyslexia may also cause some challenges in math, the term dyslexia refers to language not numbers.
What your child may be experiencing is called “dyscalculia”. Dyscalculia involves challenges with “number sense” which we featured in one of our Number Sense Understanding. With number sense, your child may be challenged with simple math concepts.
Many children struggle with both dyslexia and dyscalculia. Understood.org has a Q&A article that will give you greater insight into how to recognize these challenges and what you can do to get your child the support they need.
