Abstract
Objective. The laterality marks the extremities and the senses of one side of the body that are connected by afferent and efferent nerve pathways, with the primary motor and sensory areas of the opposite hemisphere. Laterality can be observed at the level of the upper extremity, ocular dominance, and dominance of hearing and at the level of the lower extremities. The aim of our study was to determine the relationship between senses and limbs laterality and the appearance of dyscalculia among primary school students. Methods. In our study 140 fifth-grade students from all the elementary schools in Kragujevac were involved. For the determination of the dominant laterality senses and limbs some specific questionnaires were used. Results. The results clearly show the following: dominant handedness does not affect the appearance of dyscalculia (p=1.000); upper limb gestual laterality does not affect the appearance of dyscalculia (p=0.864); laterality of the lower extremities (p=0.733), ocular dominance (p=0.121) and laterality of hearing (p=0.602) do not affect the appearance of dyscalculia; laterality affection in any segment does not affect the overall mathematics achievement test (p=0.189). Conclusion. All of the problems with laterality observed in students with learning disabilities should be processed by a team. Exercises in psychomotor reeducation program related to guidance, practicing and stabilization laterality have a great impact on reducing learning problems, especially the problems of the calculus.
