Dyscalculia is a difficulty with mathematics which interferes noticeably with school performance although there is neither intellectual nor sensorial deficiency.

This is a specific learning disability, just as dyslexia is, which it can moreover be associated with to varying degrees.

Children suffering from dyspraxia are also affected by dyscalculia.

The Tomatis method provides a means of considerably counteracting this disability through a precise action on fine motor skills, laterality and short term verbal memory, in particular by working on establishing correspondences between numbers as figures and the naming of numbers.
