Abstract [sv]

Barn som utreds för läs- och skrivsvårigheter (dyslexi, diagnos F81.0 enligt Socialstyrelsens klassifikation ICD.10) visar sig ibland även ha räknesvårigheter karakteristiska för diagnosen dyskalkyli (F81). När båda typerna av problem föreligger ska diagnosen blandade inlärningssvårigheter (F81.3) ges. Behovet av metoder för screening av matematisk förmåga är stort. Syfte: Studera hur barn med dyslexi respektive blandade inlärningssvårigheter presterar på Dyscalculia Screening Test (DS) (Butterworth 2003), jämföra resultaten med svenska respektive engelska normer och med lärares skattning av hur barnen når skolans mål i matematik. Metod: Barn (N=45) som utretts för läs- och skrivsvårigheter på logopedenhet. DS-test och en lärarenkät om uppfyllan av målen i matematik inför utredningen. Resultat: Barn med dyslexi (F81.0) fick normala resultat på DS deltester i mängd och antalsuppfattning vilka anses känsliga för dyskalkyli och låga resultat på deltester i räknefärdighet (addition, multiplikation). De fick signifikant lägre resultat än svenska normer (Sahlberg & Taavola 2011) på samtliga deltest i DS. Barn med blandad inlärningsstörning (F81.3) hade generellt låga resultat på alla deltest i DS. Enligt lärares skattning hade deltagare med dyslexi (F81.0) mest problem med lästal och multiplikation medan deltagare med blandad inlärningsstörning (F81.3) hade svårigheter inom alla efterfrågade mål i matematik. Slutsats: Dyscalculia Screening Test kan vara användbart som komplement vid utredning av läs- och skrivsvårigheter för att särskilja diagnosen dyslexi (F81.0) från blandade inlärningssvårigheter (F81.3).

Abstract [en]

Children who are assessed for reading and writing difficulties (dyslexia, diagnosis F81.0 according to The National Social Welfare Board classification ICD. 10) sometimes even have problems with counting which are characteristic of the diagnosis dyscalculia (F81.2). When both types of difficulties exist, the diagnosis mixed disorder of scholastic skills (F81.3) should be given. The need for methods to screen mathematical ability is large. Aim: To study how children with dyslexia compared to children with mixed disorder of scholastic skills perform on the Dyscalculia Screening Test (DS) ( Butterworth 2003), to compare the result using both Swedish and English norms and using teachers´ evaluations of how the children reach the schools' goals in mathematics. Method: Children (N=45) who are assessed for reading and writing difficulties by the speech and language therapy department. The DS-test and a formula filled in by the teacher showing how well the children attained the goals in mathematics prior to the assessment. Result: Children with dyslexia attained normal results on the subtests of the DS testing quantity and number sense which is considered sensitive to dyscalculia and low results on the subtests for counting ability (addition, multiplication). They attained significantly lower results than the Swedish norms (Sahlberg and Taavola 2011) on the same subtests in the DS. Children with mixed disorder of scholastic skills (F811.3) attained generally lower results in all the subtests of the DS. According to the teachers´ evaluation, the participants with dyslexia (F81.3) had most difficulty with worded problem-solving and multiplication whilst the participants with mixed disorder of scholastic skills had difficulty in all the given goals in mathematics. Conclusion: The Dyscalculia Screening Test can be a useful component in the assessment of reading and writing difficulties in order to differentiate the diagnosis dyslexia (F81.0) from mixed disorder of scholastic skills.
