Ever since we launched the Dyscalculia Centre the most common enquiry we have had is "Do you have a test for dyscalculia?"
We've now produced two tests. One is for use by teachers within a school and allows comparisons to be made between different members of the class; the other is an on-line test for individuals to take.
Details of the comparative test to be used across the school are given elsewhere on this site (see the link below). This test covers the individual's reaction to maths in the everyday world, addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, shapes, basic percentages, basic fractions and time. It is suitable for children aged 8 upwards and adults, providing the child has covered these topics in lessons at school.
The online Dyscalculia Test involves taking a test (most people complete it within 10 to 15 minutes) which is then reviewed by a member of the Dyscalculia Centre team. You then receive back a personally prepared report relating to the mathematical problems faced by the person doing the test and whether it is likely that this person has dyscalculia. Additionally you will receive a copy of work materials that can be used to help overcome the problems identified. If we find no trace of dyscalculia or related problems then half of the money paid for the test is refunded.
Before you take the test we strongly advise you to read the following two articles.
