Dyscalculia isn't just "maths dyslexia"

Dyscalculia can be the cause of problems with time management, spatial recognition, and motor functions. About 20 % of people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also have dyscalculia.

The following are also ways that Dyscalculia affects your life:

✨ You may have trouble learning athletic movements, dance steps, or anything that requires you to move your body in a certain sequence

✨ You may hear complaints that you drive too fast or too slowly — even though you feel like you drive at a normal speed

✨ You may have difficulty reading graphs or charts

✨ You may have trouble estimating how long it will take you to get somewhere, even if you’ve made the trip before

✨ You may run out of time when completing tasks on deadline, or find that much more time has passed than you had originally thought

✨ You may misplace objects around the house or get lost in familiar areas

✨ You may forget phone numbers or addresses, even just a few moments after they were said to you

✨ You may arrive late to events or appointments

✨ You may find it hard to stick to a budget or keep track of your finances

✨ You may have trouble telling time on an analog clock

✨ You may get anxious when you know math-related tasks are coming up — a meeting where you’ll have to discuss your company’s latest quarterly figures, for example

If you’re concerned that you might have dyscalculia discuss this with your doctor/specialist.
