Don't Like Studying Maths - Can Your Child Be Suffering From Dyscalculia?

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, Doing Post Diploma MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Don't Like Studying Maths - Can Your Child Be Suffering From Dyscalculia?

At a young age, it is fairly common to be afraid of math. The rational nature of numbers, multiplication tables, addition, subtraction and all that in between can admittedly be a tough thing to get on with at a tender age. But in most of the cases, this difficulty tends to improve as one attains maturity. This can be attributed to a growing familiarity with the subject and a subsequent change in the way of understanding certain things. But if your child suffers from a problem with understanding math even at a grown age, chances are he/she might be suffering from Dyscalculia- a special type of learning disorder that is characterized by a person’s inability to grasp the concepts of math or the very concept of numbers itself.

Dyscalculia generally occurs due to genetic factors. However, it is also possible to encounter this disorder if your child had suffered from significant brain injury in the past or have problems with remembering things. It is also possible to have this disorder, if your child is already suffering from Dyslexia ( a learning disorder which makes your child unable to read or understand written words).

The symptoms of Dyscalculia are as follows:

  1. Inability to recognize numbers and significant trouble while counting.
  2. Significant problems while performing basic additions, subtractions or divisions.
  3. Facing problems with how to use money or telling time.
  4. The problem with memorizing mathematical formulae or tables.
  5. Your child might be unable to discern exactly how to approach a math problem.
  6. Your child will be increasingly reluctant to go to a math class or feel tensed before math examinations.
  7. Inability to understand the basic functionality of numbers.

It is extremely important to remember that having this disorder does not necessarily mean your child has a bad academic record on the whole. Since this disorder can cause significant problems in the future for your child in terms of dealing with things in the real world, you should be extremely sensitive regarding its treatment.

The treatment of Dyscalculia might include:

  1. You should encourage your child more and more if they tend to get immensely frustrated with their math problems. If possible, try to help your child with his/ her homework.
  2. Strike a healthy relationship with your child. Make him realize that not being able to grasp the concept of numbers is not the end of the world. Explore his other skills. That might boost his lost confidence and might encourage him to approach math in a more efficient manner.
  3. You should try to make your child learn how to tell time or use money with little home exercises. If possible, try to make him learn the basic of math with daily activities like counting the number of flowers while walking down the streets.
  4. You must consult a specialist who will make your child learn numbers by following different modes other than writing. For example, the specialist might read a math problem to your child in order to make him understand the problem. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, I suggest, you go to a neurologist for loss of weight as chief complaint, here is some stuff which might help you: Eat small, frequent meals, every two to three hours, or eat a nutritious snack between meals. Eat foods you enjoy. Save your energy for eating by keeping easy-to-prepare foods on hand. Stimulate your appetite by seasoning food with herbs, spices and sauces. Include some high-calorie foods like cream and butter (if recommended by your primary care provider) in your diet. Consider drinking a nutritional supplement, such as Ensure® or Carnation® Breakfast Essentials™. Avoid filling up on coffee, tea and clear soups. Limit fatigue by choosing foods that are easy to chew (e.g. Smoothies, ground meats or other soft proteins) and asking for help in cutting other foods (meat) into smaller pieces. Increase consumption of whole grains (whole grain rice, breads). BUT THESE SHOULD BE ONLY TAKEN AFTER ADVISE FROM A NEUROLOGIST.

Hi lybrate-user, I went through the details about your mother, it looks like she has features suggestive of senile depression, but you also told that she keeps on repeating same thing again and again, it appears that she has mild memory loss (MCI which can be a part of depression) but I feek that there are some cances of early onset dementia too, so it needs detailed evaluation, Do not worry, she requires proper care froma psychiatrist and family support too, which of course you are providing, that's why you asked me the question. I believe she requires some medications for some time. Inbox me your details and we can proceed further or you can go to a nearby psychiatrist, what ever you feel is comfortable. Best of luck to you.

Hi Lybrate user, I read your problem in detail, I think your problem needs to be evaluated regarding the cause of early leakage (or premature ejaculation, which needs to be evaluated before calling it so). Most of the time it is okay to masturbate and the amount of masturbation you are/were doing should not cause you distress. Always READ LITERATURE ABUT MASTURBATION FROM AUTHENTIC SOURCES OR SCIENTIFIC JOURNALS ,before having any myths about it. Go to a nearby psychiatrist who might further refer you to a urologist for probable varicosity causing testicular pain. But you must BE STRONG AND NOT FEEL SHY and get yourself evaluated. Best of luck.

Hi mam, fatty liver is an initial phase when damage of liver starts happening, it indicated degenerative changes in liver in the begining .DM might contribute to liver damage by promoting inflammation and fibrosis through an increase in l oxidative stress mediated by adipokines (vhemicals which cause inflammation). Recent reports regarding the use of the SGLT2 inhibitors as well as the new incretin-based therapies such as injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists and oral inhibitors of dipeptidylpeptidase-4 (DPP-4).But an opinion from physician is required for the optimiztion of the medications .You must visit your primary physician for the adjustment of the medications. Best of luck.
