2. Trouble Learning to Count
Children typically learn to count as toddlers and most catch on pretty quickly. It’s not uncommon for some children to struggle with learning their numbers. This can make it hard for parents to determine if their children are simply too young to understand the concept of counting or if they are suffering from a condition such as dyscalculia.
Parents of other children who have the condition may recognize the symptoms easier than parents who do not have children with the condition already. Since children learn to count at different ages, and most don’t master it until they start school, it can be hard for parents to get an early diagnosis of dyscalculia.
Experts and doctors may be able to diagnose the condition early so if you notice your child struggling to count, even if they are still young, it may be a good idea to have them evaluated by a professional to rule out dyscalculia.
