About dyscalculia

How does dyscalculia and maths learning difficulties affect adults?

We need maths to carry out every day tasks. It affects ability to tell the time and plan schedules, to estimate the cost of living and make appropriate purchases to stay within a budget, to calculate distances for travel and work out journey times.

Almost all jobs need maths from hairdressers, builders, chefs and cooks, market stall holders, upholsterers and those involved with sail making, boat builders, architects, engineers, accountants, business people generally and so many more professions.

About 1 in 4 adults have a fear of maths. You are not alone. Take the National Numeracy Challenge
