Abstract

This article describes a theory-based approach to assessment of acquired dyscalculia. A model of the normal cognitive number-processing/calculation system is presented, and methods are discussed for characterizing number-processing/calculation deficits in terms of functional damage to the mechanisms specified in the model.
