Math can be a stumbling block for many children, but sometimes that stumble is also a warning sign. "Dyscalculia," a difficulty with numbers, often involves language processing problems and is similar to dyslexia in some of its warning signs: difficulty in following the steps in a game or in directions; trouble with placing numbers (or letters) in order; and difficulty in visualizing patterns (for example, shapes and sizes).
Despite some similarities, dyscalculia and dyslexia are separate learning disabilities. Children with dyslexia or other reading challenges may or may not have challenges with math--and vice versa.
Windy Row Learning Center has programs specially designed to help children with math concepts. Our one-on-one, step-by-step, patient, and creative approach works with math challenges as well as reading challenges. If your child is a year or more behind grade level in math, please info [at] windyrow.org (contact us).
