Anyone aged 8+ can be tested for dyscalculia.  The most common ways of being tested are through having a private one-to-one consultation with an educational psychologist who specialises in the subject, or through using our on-line test. 

Working one-to-one with a psychologist will give a much deeper analysis than we can give on line, but there will be a significant difference in cost.  If you are looking to gather detailed ideas and materials relating to how the individual with dyscalculia can be helped to overcome her or his difficulties it is worth checking with the psychologist first of all, if this is part of the service on offer.

Our on-line test offers a different approach.  It cannot give the depth of analysis a psychologist will gain from a three hour one-to-one study, but it does give a clear indication of where we find problems.  Plus where we do find dyscalculia we provide some materials that a parent, friend or teacher can use with the individual to help the person start to overcome the problems that dyscalculia brings.

Do you have a question about dyscalculia?

We regularly get questions concerning dyscalculia from both individuals and organisations, and unfortunately in the past year the volume of questions we are getting has become so large that we simply no longer have the resources to answer each one.

Therefore we would ask that you visit our "Often asked questions" page as I believe your question is answered there. If it isn't please do write to us, and we'll create an answer to be added to the page.
