ABC - Radio Australia Advocates For People With Disabilities

"All In The Mind" is a programme of Radio Australia and on January 30th, it will focus on those with a most common, but difficult disability that sometimes has dreadful consequences: the inability of some people to comprehend math. These people see the numbers just fine although their lack of math skills would make one think about numerical dyslexia. This math comprehension learning disability now has a name in Australia.

"Dyscalculia" is going to be defined in this upcoming program during which scientists will lay out the biological basis for this disorder. Go to the Shortwave America Listening Gallery at the top of the page to listen.
