Abstract and Keywords

The cognitive predictors of mathematical abilities and disabilities/disorders (MD) were investigated. An overview is given of the prediction by early numeracy skills such as Piagetian logical thinking, counting, and number comparison skills. In addition, studies of relationships between language and numeracy in kindergarten and grade 1 are discussed. Moreover, the chapter sought out to extend our knowledge regarding the relationship between motor, visual and visuomotor skills and mathematical abilities and disabilities. Furthermore, the chapter discusses studies of working memory, inhibition, naming speed and inference control as cognitive predictors for mathematical abilities and MD. Finally findings about the sensitivity of number sense for MD are provided.

Keywords: mathematical disabilities, predictors, logical thinking, counting, number comparison, language, motor skills, working memory, number sense, subtypes, spelling
