Maths Skills Screening
This level of assessment does not provide a diagnosis of dyslexia or dyscalculia
At present there is not a widely agreed definition of dyscalculia or a definitive process for diagnosis. However, maths difficulties are common and this assessment provides recommendations to address these problems. Many learners with maths difficulties experience high levels of anxiety. Strategies to reduce anxiety often lead to greater success with maths.
