We are an English-language blog but we are aware that we have readers from all over the world. We would like to put together a list of dyscalculia resources to meet other linguistic needs. We’ve found a few resources in various languages but we invite readers to submit their own suggestions in the comments! Together we can collect resources to help readers across the globe.
Please note: the inclusion of a website in the below list does not represent an endorsement but rather a starting point for readers to explore new possible resources.
For a quick overview of the symptoms of dyscalculia in French, visit the Dyscalculie section of the Fédération française des Dys. The page is quite short but a nice feature is optional audio that makes the text more accessible to visitors with dyslexia.
For German readers, the Verband Dyslexie Schweiz (Swiss Dyslexia Association) offers a wealth of information on dyscalculia as well as dyslexia. The section Dyskalkulie covers early detection, causes, support options, and more.
The BVL (German Association for Dyslexia and Dyscalculia) website includes a similar breadth of information on dyscalculia and also lists regional contacts for support groups as well as email contacts for those wanting to know more about dyslexia and dyscalculia.
Based in Spain, the site discalculia.es gives visitors a thorough introduction to dyscalculia. Articles include images that illustrate the difficulty dyscalculics have in, for example, distinguishing quantities. Click around to explore further topics such as symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
Understood.org is one of the best online resources for learning disabilities out there. We are big fans of the English version but the site is also available in Spanish. Read the article Entender la discalculia (“Understanding Dyscalculia”) for a thorough overview of dyscalculia.
We just discovered Dyscalculine this morning on Twitter and are not familiar with the educational games or textbooks the company provides, but readers looking for information on dyscalculia in Hungarian can check out the site here. The website is also available in English.
Grow the list!
