Abstract: There exists already a large body of literature both on learners’ struggle with understanding the rational number system and on the role of the natural number bias in this struggle. However, little is known about rational number understanding of learners with dyscalculia. In this study, we investigated the rational number understanding of learners with dyscalculia, with a specific focus on the role of the natural number bias in this understanding. The results suggest that in addition to a delay in their general mathematics achievement, learners with dyscalculia have an extra delay, but no deficit in their rational number understanding, compared to their peers.
