There is an interesting article in the¬†International Journal of Learning, Teaching and Educational Research that highlights a study done among secondary school math teachers. It turns out they don’t know enough about dyscalculia to ensure children will be detected early and have the best opportunity for remediation.

The study can be found HERE.

The recommendation of the study is that teachers get trained to recognize the symptoms and make a distinction between general academic challenges and a real Math Learning Disorder or Dyscalculia.

Getting trained does not take much time but can impact the life of so many children who are dependent on the skills of our educators to find their way through their academic career.
