    Dyscalculia is caused by developmental differences in the structures and patterns of activation in the brain. Affected learners require timely and tailored interventions, informed and shaped by neurological findings. In this ground-breaking text, Professor Butterworth explains the latest research in the science of dyscalculia in a clear, non-technical way. Crucially, he shows that dyscalculia is caused by a core deficit in the ability to accurately and swiftly represent the number of objects in a set, an ability that underpins learning arithmetic, and clearly differentiates dyscalculia from other forms of early mathematical learning difficulties. Butterworth uniquely links research to pedagogical practice, to explain how science can be used for the identification of dyscalculia, and for the development of strategies to best help affected learners acquire arithmetical competence.
