Dyscalculia guidance released

The aim of this new SASC guidance on dyscalculia, SpLDs and maths learning difficulties is to provide assessors with updated, evidence based, operationally effective definitions and procedures which will enable them to differentiate between three categories of mathematics learning difficulties:

  1. Dyscalculia – a SpLD whose core feature is a problem with sense of number
  2. Other SpLDs which do not include a problem with sense of number, but which may have an impact upon mathematics learning
  3. Maths learning difficulties arising from lack of appropriate teaching, environmental factors or other medical conditions.

The guidance can be accessed from the Downloads page of the SASC website or click the link below.
