    Räkna med dyskalkyli!: En studie om ett specialpedagogiskt problem som kallas dyskalkyli2010Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to some researchers, dyscalculia is at least as prevalent as dyslexia. Somewhere between 3.6-6 % of all pupils have specific mathematics difficulties named dyslexia. If this be true, it should present the most complex special education predicament by far in schools today. Despite the statistics, dyscalculia is still a rather unknown concept.

    The cause of dyscalculia is not yet fully analyzed. There are several theories and many researchers see similarities between dyscalculia and the special educational problem of reading and writing, dyslexia. The most important factor for pupils to be able to develop mathematical skills is adequate assistance at the earliest possible stage. It is probable that this adequate assistance is achieved if the pupil is diagnosed with dyscalculia and therefore gets access to a special educational resources.

    In this essay, I want to analyze the concept of dyscalculia and how recognized it is today. To this end, I have undertaken several interviews with the objective of seeing how educationalists relate to dyscalculia. In order to see how the diagnosis is performed, and what it means to be diagnosed, I have followed the work process from a pupil suspected of having dyscalculia to a possible diagnosis. I have also personally undergone a dyscalculia investigation at an authorized speech therapist in order to achieve a profound insight into the diagnosis process.

    My study shows that the concept of dyscalculia is not widely recognized, but that the knowledge around dyscalculia is increasing. Research is currently undertaken in the field even though it is not to the same extent as dyslexia.
