Research into dyscalculia is still in the early stages compared with dyslexia. It is estimated that dyscalculia affects 4 – 6% of the population and it often co-occurs alongside other specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia. Just as there is no single set of indicators that characterises dyslexia, there are a number of areas which can cause dyscalculic difficulties. There are many areas which people with dyslexia may also find difficult. These could include written number problems and difficulties caused by poor working memory.
