Discalculalia

Discalculalia is a neurological disease associated with the difficulty of understanding the structure of numbers and performing arithmetic operations. People with this disorder are as much as with dyslexia - 5-7% of the population. People with discalculalia are often excluded from society because this disease is poorly understood. But since dyscalculia has been studied much worse, it means that people with this disorder often turn out to be inferior members of society. As a result, this feature greatly affects the social status of its carriers: according to statistics, they earn less and spend less, they have more problems with the law and they are more often have a sick. Symptoms of dyscalculia: the child does not understand the structure of the number; operations with complex numbers cause serious difficulties; it is difficult for a child to compare the quantities of objects.

Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia is present in children with constant and repetitive mistakes in writing. It is hard for a child to write and to have literate letter. This disease often occurs when the child is bilingual, in bilingual families. Symptoms of dysgraphia: Children with dysgraphia have often very poor handwriting - small or very large, illegible. They write in a mirror, turn over the letters, not write the endings or add extra letters. The child is hard to write on the line, the words move to the lines, one on another, slide off the line. The writing errors are not related to the violation of grammar rules.
