Dyscalculia is a specific learning disorder in mathematics, characterized by severe and persistent difficulties in learning math, while the IQ mostly falls in the average range. Students who have already been diagnosed with other learning or developmental disorders such as dyslexia, ADHD, autism, dyspraxia, dysgraphia may have dyscalculia as well. Dyscalculia also occurs singly and students may experience math- and test anxiety as well.

It is vital to perform extensive diagnostic testing to establish whether a student has dyscalculia or math difficulties.
