Abstract: Exploring mathematical estimation of children with mathematics learning disabilities (MD) will help us understanding the cause of MD and finding proper intervention measures. Based on reviewing the concepts of MD and estimation briefly, this article mainly focused on mathematical estimation performance and influential factors of children with MD (especially computational estimation and numerosity estimation), neural basis and relevant intervention researches which have been discussed both home and abroad in recent years. In addition, it emphasized that future researches on mathematical estimation of children with MD should attach importance to the screening of subjects, broadening research extents, and strengthening various recovery programs and so on.

Key words: mathematics learning disabilities, mathematical estimation, computational estimation, numerosity estimation, numerical cognition
