MATOS, Edneia Felix de  and  SANTOS, Daniela Miranda Fernandes. Dyscalculia and education: What knowledge the teachers have about this theme. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.116, pp. 272-283. ISSN 0103-8486.

The school today faces great challenges in relation to the learning difficulties, since the number of students with some type of learning difficulty is increasing, and the difficulties related to the learning of mathematical concepts appear as being a preponderant factor regarding the school failure. Schoolchildren who do not learn mathematics may have dyscalculia, a specific difficulty in mathematics that is related to a structural disorder in the area related to mathematical skills. This study discloses the results of a qualitative research and exploratory design that aimed to investigate the perception of teachers of elementary schools I in a city in the interior of the state of São Paulo, region of the city of Marília, regarding the learning disorder called dyscalculia, its characteristics, forms of manifestations among children, in view of possible strategies for psychopedagogical interventions based on playful practices that can be used to work in the classroom with students who have this disorder. We hope that this study can contribute to the expansion of discussions on dyscalculia.
