Introduction

At Bright Pine Behavioral Health, we recognize that dyscalculia, a learning disorder affecting numerical and mathematical abilities, can pose significant challenges for individuals. However, with the right support and interventions, individuals with dyscalculia can successfully navigate these challenges.

Understanding Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is a learning disorder that affects an individual’s ability to understand numbers and mathematical concepts. It’s not a reflection of intelligence or effort, but rather a different way the brain processes numerical information. People with dyscalculia often struggle with number sense, calculation, and mathematical reasoning.

Dyscalculia Testing at Bright Pine Behavioral Health

Our dyscalculia testing process is thorough and individualized. It begins with a comprehensive review of the individual’s developmental, medical, educational, and family history. This is followed by a series of standardized assessments designed to evaluate key areas affected by dyscalculia, including:

  • Mathematical skills: We assess the individual’s ability to perform basic arithmetic operations, understand mathematical symbols, and solve mathematical problems.
  • Number sense: We evaluate the individual’s understanding of number magnitude, number relationships, and numerical patterns.
  • Problem-solving abilities: We assess the individual’s ability to apply mathematical concepts to solve real-world problems.

The results of these assessments provide a detailed understanding of the individual’s unique strengths and challenges, helping us to identify the presence of dyscalculia and its impact on the individual’s learning.
