In recent years, dyslexia awareness has skyrocketed and schools have begun to respond with testing opportunities, special education programs, and skills advancement classes. Dyscalculia has been finding some acknowledgement, but not nearly enough. Yet.
Across the world, studies are being done to figure out the physical causes of dyscalculia and some treatments are already proving to be quite helpful. Tetris and other linear-based video games are being tested with some success to teach better spatial awareness. Visual-based mathematics programs and specialized software are also being developed to help student better imagine the concepts in their heads from a young age. Some schools are even beginning to allow special circumstances (i.e. additional test time, access to class notes, and etc.) to students with a recognized diagnosis of dyscalculia. For each school offering help, however, there are still others which are resisting acknowledgement of the disorder and its effects.
Like dyslexia before it, Dyscalculia education and screening needs to be made easily and profusely accessible because the more aware the school system can be made, the more bright, beautiful futures all dyscalculics everywhere have to look forward to.
