Dyscalculia....Although I have not been diagnosed with this - the fact I cannot even add up simple numbers, cannot remember numbers and often write them backwards kind of makes me think I have a bit of a math problem. You think!?!
Verbarius Clock - Forget hands. Forget numbers. In fact, forget using just one language. With the very excellent new Verbarius Clock now you can tell the time the way it’s meant to be told; whether you’re speaking English, Esperanto or an esoteric Eastern European dialect.
What is dyscalculia? People with dyscalculia have difficulties with numbers. The latest studies estimate over 5% of the population has dyscalculia, equating to more than 3 million UK citizens. Most have never been diagnosed. Dyscalculia is found in people from all backgrounds, cultures and levels of intellectual ability. Interestingly, about 40% of dyslexics also have dyscalculia.How are people with dyscalculia different? Dyscalculia is something you are born with.....
Developmental dyscalculia is a difficulty in learning mathematics which is thought to affect 3-6% of the population and may be due, at least in part, to a dysfunction of areas of the brain that represent numerical information.
