Dyscalculia is a specific learning disability that affects a person's ability to acquire arithmetical skills. Research suggests that dyscalculia has varying levels of severity and can affect different areas of mathematics. There is a strong overlap with dyslexia, with pure number processing difficulties (in the absence of any other specific learning difficulties) appearing to be very rare. Children with dyscalculia can struggle with day-to-day activities such as dealing with finances, following directions, managing a diary and keeping track of time.
Taken from Good Schools Guide:
Dysgraphia is a condition that causes problems with written expression. For many children with dysgraphia, holding a pencil and organising letters on a line are difficult. They may also struggle with spelling, and with processing their thoughts and writing them down. They are frequently articulate and lively contributors to discussion but will avoid putting pen to paper.
