Dyscalculia: treatments

It is obvious that the more we intervene early to treat dyscalculia, and the more we accompany a young person to build his thinking, to develop his knowledge (especially when he suffers from problems such as logical disorders and reasoning), the less he will be difficult for him to learn at school.

But for all that, the re-education support that the speech therapist offers to treat dyscalculia is not limited to children.

Adolescents, and sometimes adults who need it in their professional lives, can be helped if logical and / or mathematical reasoning is disturbed and disrupts the daily work or the academic and / or professional development of those concerned.

One of the goals of treatment with speech therapy for dyscalculia is to reduce the gap between a child's abilities and what is expected of them in the classroom. The speech therapist will help the child towards this autonomy to think for himself, so that he can develop his own reasoning, and understand the academic content.

After the initial assessment to diagnose and characterize dyscalculia, the speech therapist puts the child or adolescent in a position to work according to his level, on what poses problems (while respecting a progression under- strained by theoretical knowledge and know-how).

The orthophonic care of computational disorders and logico-mathematical reasoning has a variable duration depending on the type and importance of disorders. It is very difficult to give a duration of treatment for dyscalculia, there is no generality, since each patient is different, the duration of this treatment varies depending on each.
