How is Dyscalculia diagnosed?
Dyscalculia can be diagnosed through a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment offered by a psychologist or neuropsychologist. Psychoeducational assessments generally take 6+ hours and includes a mathematics literacy component that can screen for dyscalculia, as well as other comorbid conditions such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD.
