learning and performing maths draws on a
wide range of underlying skills these
00:00:06.790 --> 00:00:11.600
skills can be categorized as either
number skills
00:00:11.600 --> 00:00:16.600
or more general thinking skills.
00:00:17.200 --> 00:00:22.910
Developmental discalculia is a specific
learning difficulty with maths research
00:00:22.910 --> 00:00:27.800
suggests that dyscalculia stems from
poor number skills, counting and
00:00:27.800 --> 00:00:30.489
estimation
00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:36.730
in contrast children born preterm tend
to struggle more with general thinking
00:00:36.730 --> 00:00:42.370
skills that are not specific to maths
yet are very important for many aspects
00:00:42.370 --> 00:00:47.320
of mathematical processing. Because
preterm children have very different
00:00:47.320 --> 00:00:52.750
underlying difficulties causing their
poor attainment in mathematics they are
00:00:52.750 --> 00:00:59.000
likely to need different support to
children with Developmental Dyscalculia
