The DfES defines Dyscalculia in terms of:
' A condition that affects the ability to acquire arithmetical skills. Dyscalculic learners may have difficulty understanding simple number concepts, lack an intuitive grasp of numbers, and have problems learning number facts and procedures. Even if they produce a correct answer of use a correct method, they may do so mechanically and without confidence.'
Dyscalculia literally means 'difficulty with calculations'.
