Dyscalculia Diagnosis And Evaluation
A diagnosis can only be made after an evaluation. Evaluators employ a specific series of tests for dyscalculia. It can also require testing for other difficulties. That’s in part because persons who have dyscalculia frequently also have problems with reading or working memory. Evaluations do more than just identify problems as they show strengths as well.
A diagnosis enables children to get the necessary support at school. Children may receive specialised math teaching, for instance. Additionally, the school could create concessions to make math easier to learn.
If you think your child may have dyscalculia after speaking with their doctor and teachers, make an appointment to see a psychologist at Waystone. We will talk with you and your child and evaluate their math abilities to help determine if they have it as well as how best to support them.
