What is Dyscalculia?

At it’s root, Dyscalculia is a specific type of math disability that causes adults to struggle in math in a variety of ways.

Some common characteristics of Dyscalculia in adults include:

  • Trouble with mental math; gives incorrect change, for instance, or needs a calculator to figure out a tip
  • Often running late, sometimes missing important events altogether
  • Difficulty remembering names
  • Tends to drive too fast or too slow, or totally misjudges how long it will take to drive somewhere
  • Must write down a phone number immediately to remember it
  • Gets lost easily; misplaces objects around the house frequently
  • Struggles to keep score in games; often loses track of whose turn it is
  • Slow to tell time on an analog clock
  • Weak memory for anything number-related, like dates or facts
  • Struggles to learn dance steps or anything involving motor sequencing

In addition, some of the symptoms observed at work can include:

  • Gets anxious at the thought of having to do math unexpectedly at work
  • Trouble handling money or keeping track of finances
  • Frequently runs out of time while doing a task or, fails to plan enough time for all the things that need to be done
  • Trouble understanding graphs or charts
  • Finds it hard to understand spoken math equations, even very simple ones
