The present work evaluates time perception in children with dyscalculia (DD) to verify whether DD can interfere with timing tasks. Sample includes: 12 DD subjects (M=9.5 years) and 12 healthy subjects (M=9.2 years). Two studies are carried out: a time comparison task (to judge whether an interval was longer or shorter than a reference interval) and a time reproduction task. The ANOVA shows the effect of factor GROUP on temporal relationship and errors on temporal comparison. In subsecond duration timing task, DD children are less accurate than healthy children; boys seem to have a lower level of performance than girls.

Abstract

The present work evaluates time perception in children with dyscalculia (DD) to verify whether DD can interfere with timing tasks. Sample includes: 12 DD subjects (M=9.5 years) and 12 healthy subjects (M=9.2 years). Two studies are carried out: a time comparison task (to judge whether an interval was longer or shorter than a reference interval) and a time reproduction task. The ANOVA shows the effect of factor GROUP on temporal relationship and errors on temporal comparison. In subsecond duration timing task, DD children are less accurate than healthy children; boys seem to have a lower level of performance than girls.
