In honor of World Dyscalculia Day, we would like to shed some light on what dyscalculia is. Over my 10 plus years working with learners with Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia, I have found that many learners struggle with math and math anxiety, and they are not aware that dyscalculia is a thing! Dyscalculia is a learning difficulty directly related to math. To them, it is like trying to understand someone speaking a foreign language they haven’t learned. It causes undue stress, learning obstacles and lower self-esteem.
Are you the parent who always feels exhausted because of your child's tantrums with homework? Does it concern you that it may not just be a simple meltdown but rather due to a learning challenge like dyslexia? I totally get you!

There is a growing recognition that every child benefits from being exposed to and learning about the arts, and children with learning differences, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia, are no exception. In addition to teaching valuable skills, such as eye-hand coordination and fine motor abilities, art can boost creativity and provide a means for self-expression. If you have considered using art as a teaching vehicle for your child, here are some ideas to get you started.
When people talk about reading, comic books which are known for their attractive images and colorful designs, are often the last mentioned. Well, it's not much of a surprise anymore. Why? For a long time now, many of us still do not take comic books seriously, taking the fantastic benefits they have for granted.
