Dyscalculia This is a term used to describe pupils who have significant difficulty in acquiring mathematical skills, despite making progress in other areas of the curriculum and receiving good teaching. These pupils will have difficulty in understanding and using numbers, or carrying out any calculations involving numbers. They will be prone to sequencing numbers in the wrong order and be unsure which columns to place numbers in when writing out their sums. They will continue to rely on their fingers or other practical apparatus when their peers have moved on to mental calculations.

Infants’ interest in an event is aroused when the unexpected happens and the routine varies in some way. The discrepancy principle (when learning takes place through the unexpected) has implications that can be implemented in the classroom. In their earliest months, babies also learn by reproducing or repeating human behaviour. By their second birthday, infants are motivated to engage in learning by imitation, because they want to behave like other people they have observed. Between the ages of three and four, children begin to problem solve, using their learning and knowledge to work out what to do in a similar situation to one that has arisen before.

Before the frontal cortex is mature enough to act as a start–stop function, adults caring for the infant act as the control, and most infants will respond to these external directions. Children with CD or ODD do not seem able to respond in this way. Once they reach school age, this has an impact on their ability to behave in a way that allows them to respond positively to the learning opportunities that are offered. Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) There are different theories about the origin of OCD, with some viewing it as a psychological disorder which can be traced to a traumatic event in childhood; some seeing it following a genetic pattern where one or both parents have obsessional behaviour; while others, perhaps a majority, think its roots lie in abnormalities in the brain.
