The acquisition of numerical competency is regarded as imperative for quality of life and economic well-being. Many children have significant mathematical learning difficulties known as dyscalculia. The aim of this research was to systematically review the available literature for interventions with children presenting with dyscalculia in primary schools, in order to provide an evidence base of filtered information assessed for methodological rigour and coherence. The study evaluated literature from 2004 to 2014 that reported on interventions for primary school children presenting with dyscalculia. Specific databases were accessed to highlight literature for inclusion in the study. The studies were assessed at title, abstract and full text levels for quality based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The findings provide a base of effective interventions that can be used in the school setting for individual development with a holistic focus and present various methods of instruction for children presenting with dyscalculia.
