Esti is 7. When she started first grade she was already reading. It was amazing. At preschool she learned the alphabet and from there proceeded to teach herself how to read by piecing the letters together and forming words, until she was completely fluent. When it came to numbers, however, she was stumped. She just couldn’t do simple arithmetic exercises. At first her teachers thought that within time she would catch on. But when this didn’t happen she came to Arugot for an assessment and here the remedial didactic specialist discovered that she has a learning disability called: Dyscalculia. This is a deficit in the brain’s ability to process number related information, and it can be treated. And the earlier the better. She is now receiving help in this specific area and making great improvement.
