Dyscalculia describes a poor, or incorrect, understanding of amounts, figures and mathematical operations. Countless school pupils of all ages are affected by this problem. These children frequently experience fear of failure and poor educational performance. The authors explain neurocognitive models of numerical reasoning and calculation, and elucidate diagnostic methods for dyscalculia. Intervention strategies and training programmes are critically examined and questioned for efficacy. The third edition is complemented by current findings on number processing, new diagnostic instruments, computer-based training programmes and neuronal stimulation.
