The Dyscalculia Centre has for a number of years now run an online diagnostic test for dyscalculia. Now we have introduced an additional free test which you can download and use at home and which we are hoping may be of interest in some cases.
Our long-established diagnostic test involves many in-depth questions which between them establish not only if the individual taking the test is likely to be dyscalculic, but also where the particular problems in understanding elements of maths exist within the individual’s brain.
Of course, this test is not the equivalent of a full report from an educational psychologist, but for a very modest price it is able to give both an indication of where problems arise (and thus where the emphasis should be placed on future teaching) and provide suitable teaching materials that allows specialist tuition of the individual to begin at once.
However we have often had requests, both from teachers and from adults who themselves feel they may be suffering from dyscalculia, for a simple test which gives a straightforward answer to the question, “Is it likely that I am dyscalculic?”
As a result we have introduced a very straightforward test which seeks to answer that question. It is a test that takes a short amount of time to complete, and it gives the answer.
As such it is not a diagnosis, but is simply an indication for those who seek nothing more than an indication.
If you feel that you might have dyscalculia, or if you feel that a person you know might have dyscalculia, you may find this test can help you.
I must stress however that it is very straightforward, and unlike the main Dyscalculia Test on this website it does not come with support materials and the like which you can use to help you to improve your maths.
On the other hand, if you feel that you would like to engage in a preliminary test, without cost, before you proceed to our diagnostic test, this may be of help to you.
