Description/Abstract

The paper discusses issues related to the identification of children with extreme difficulties in arithmetic who are regarded as potentially having dyscalculia. We present cases of 7 year old children with different approaches to a standardised computer-based test. We present issues that the cases raise and reflect on how such tests can inform those who use them and whether they enable or not the identification of children’s specific difficulties in arithmetic learning.
