Maths Difficulties and their Solution
Learn how to control the thought process behind your maths difficulty and unlock new areas of ability.
Behind dyscalculia is a perceptual talent
Many people who have numeracy difficulties have a thinking style in which they use their imagination to make 3-D images, and travel through these images in much the same way as computers use virtual reality.
This is a perceptual talent which makes some maths topics easy and fun.
However, this same perceptual talent can be the cause of real difficulties in other areas of maths.
Confusion about the real world
The images, although imaginary, are perceived as reality - and while they are happening, the person's perception of the real physical world is distorted.
Part of this distortion is the person's inner sense of time. For them, a minute is sometimes long, sometimes short. They do not experience time passing in an ordered, uniform way. Without an accurate sense of time, other concepts like sequence and order versus disorder cannot be fully understood.
Confusion about maths
It is these concepts that form the basis of maths.
