Psychological Well-Being

Coping with dyscalculia often extends beyond mathematical challenges, impacting an individual’s psychological well-being. Frustration, anxiety, and self-doubt can take a toll. This highlights the importance of holistic support, not only in addressing math difficulties but also in promoting mental health awareness. By fostering a nurturing environment that recognizes the emotional impact of dyscalculia, the project empowers individuals to seek the help they need. Through understanding and support, the consortium can help them build resilience and self-esteem, enabling them to navigate both the mathematical and emotional aspects of their educational journey.

Academic Performance

Dyscalculia’s influence on academic performance cannot be underestimated. For those dealing with this math learning disability, traditional approaches may not suffice. That’s why tailored educational strategies and accommodations are essential. By recognizing individual needs and adapting teaching methods, this project can help bridge the gap in mathematical understanding. This not only improves academic performance but also fosters a sense of achievement and self-confidence. In acknowledging the unique challenges posed by dyscalculia, we pave the way for more inclusive and effective educational experiences.

Intervention and Remediation

Intervention and remediation are lifelines for individuals grappling with dyscalculia. These tailored strategies and support systems are pivotal in helping them overcome math-related challenges. By addressing specific areas of difficulty, such as number sense or problem-solving, these interventions empower individuals to enhance their mathematical abilities. Ultimately, this assistance not only boosts their confidence but also contributes to overall academic success. Recognizing the importance of these interventions underscores the consortium´s commitment to inclusivity and providing every learner with the tools they need to thrive in the world of mathematics and beyond.

Diagnosis and Assessment

Diagnosing dyscalculia is a critical step in helping individuals overcome its challenges. This complex math learning disability requires assessments and evaluations conducted by experts in psychology and education. These assessments not only confirm the presence of dyscalculia but also help tailor interventions to meet individual needs. Early identification and intervention are key to improving mathematical skills and overall academic success for those with dyscalculia.

Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive neuroscience is unraveling the mysteries of dyscalculia by delving into its neurological underpinnings. Researchers are tirelessly working to pinpoint the origins of this math learning disability, examining brain structure and function to understand why some struggle with numbers. This exploration not only deepens our comprehension of dyscalculia but also holds the promise of innovative therapeutic interventions. By unlocking the brain’s secrets, we can develop targeted strategies to support those with dyscalculia, offering them a brighter future where math no longer feels like an insurmountable challenge.

Kick-Off Meeting on 1st of June 2023

The first in-person meeting, the kick-off meeting of the Erasmus+ project „Change your perspective: It´s just Dyscalculia“, was held on 1st of June 2023 in Mersin, Türkiye.

In this meeting, the partners could meet face-to-face and get to know each other. Together, they reviewed the project action plan, tasks and responsibilities as well as the dissemination plan. Thanks to very effective discussions, the partners were able to discuss important aspects and agree on the further course of action. In all, it was a successful start!

Special Education

This project „Change Your Perspective: It´s Just Dyscalculia“ underscores the significance of specialized educational support and inclusive special education programs. Individuals with dyscalculia require tailored strategies and accommodations to overcome mathematical challenges. Recognizing these needs is essential for fostering a more inclusive learning environment. It’s a reminder of the importance of equity in education, where every learner, regardless of their unique learning profile, can access the support and resources they need to thrive academically. By prioritizing effective special education programs, the consortium empower individuals with dyscalculia to reach their full potential and succeed in their educational journey.

Mathematical Skills

Mathematical skills are fundamental in our daily lives, but for individuals with dyscalculia, these skills can be an uphill battle. Dyscalculia directly impacts a person’s ability to grasp basic arithmetic, solve mathematical problems, and comprehend mathematical concepts. It’s like navigating a complex puzzle with missing pieces. Recognizing these challenges is the first step towards providing the necessary support and accommodations. By addressing the specific needs of individuals with dyscalculia, the partners of this project can help them build their mathematical skills and boost their confidence in handling numerical tasks, empowering them for success.

Learning Disabilities

Learning disabilities, like Dyscalculia, shed light on the diverse ways individuals process information. Recognizing the existence of such disabilities is essential to promote inclusive education. It reminds us that intelligence comes in many forms, and standardized tests don’t measure the full spectrum of human potential. By acknowledging and accommodating these differences, the consortium of this project can create an educational environment where everyone, regardless of their learning style, can thrive and succeed.


Dyscalculia, often referred to as a „math learning disability,“ is a condition that affects an individual’s ability to understand and work with numbers and mathematical concepts. It can lead to difficulties in basic arithmetic, number sense, and mathematical problem-solving. Recognizing dyscalculia is crucial, as it enables early intervention and tailored support for those affected. By raising awareness about dyscalculia and promoting inclusive educational strategies, the Dyscalculia initiative can help individuals overcome its challenges and develop mathematical skills, fostering confidence and success in both academic and everyday life.
