Dear Jackie,

A difficulty with maths and dyscalculia are quite different from one another.

Regardless, I think the treatment you are referring to is neurofeedback therapy. There are differing opinions on its efficacy. Not knowing which area you are in it is difficult to recommend someone; however, googling neurofeedback and your area should provide you with a place to start.

Good luck,
Delia
