Boys Suffer More Mathematics Learning Disorder Than Girls

A new study now reveals that boys face more mathematics learning disorders than girls.//

Learning disorder is used to describe the seemingly unexplained difficulty a person of at least average intelligence has in acquiring basic academic skills. These skills are essential for success at school, work and for coping with life in general.

For the first time William Barbaresi, a developmental and behavioral pediatrician, and other researchers used different definitions of mathematics learning disorders (LD), analyzed school records of boys and girls enrolled in public and private schools in Rochester and examined information from their medical records in their study, reports EurekAlert.

'Our research on the incidence of mathematics LD indicates that it is common, affecting many children at some time during their school years,' Barbaresi said. They found that boys are more likely to have mathematics LD than girls.

By considering the coexistence of mathematics LD and reading LD across the students' entire educational career, the research presents a comprehensive description. This study is the first to measure the incidence of mathematics LD by stressing on a specific population over a long time.

Medindia on Learning Disorder

The British medical literature has the first description of a specific reading disability in 1896. A "bright and intelligent boy" who had great difficulty learning to read. This intrigued the educators and subsequently more similar cases were recorded and dyslexic disorders were officially recognized as a learning disorder.
