NEW: Free preliminary test for dyscalculia

If you would like to know if a pupil or student you teach might have dyscalculia, but you are not ready to put the individual through the full diagnostic test that we have on this site, we now have a short, preliminary test for dyscalculia which is available to download free of charge.

This test is very much a preliminary test which is restricted to just 15 questions and will take students just a few minutes to complete.  The results, which are  available immediately, indicate the level of likelihood of the person being dyscalculic.

If the diagnosis is that dyscalculia is very likely to be the cause of problems that are being experienced we then would recommend that the full dyscalculia diagnostic test is taken.

Details of this full test which also provides materials that can help pupils and students overcome their dyscalculia, are given below under the heading Dyscalculia Centre introduces free preliminary test for dyscalculia.

Do you have a question about dyscalculia?

We regularly get questions concerning dyscalculia from both individuals and organisations, and unfortunately in the past year the volume of questions we are getting has become so large that we simply no longer have the resources to answer each one.

Therefore we would ask that you visit our "Often asked questions" page as I believe your question is answered there. If it isn't please do write to us, and we'll create an answer to be added to the page.
