This study has the main objective of mapping and analyzing articles related to Developmental Dyscalculia in national and international Mathematics Education events from 2006 to 2021. It is a qualitative study with numerical subsidies, bibliography of type of State of the Art. The mapping was carried out electronically in the databases of: Encontro Nacional de Educação Matemática, Seminário Internacional de Pesquisa em Educação Matemática, Associação Nacional de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa em Educação, Encontro Nacional de Educação Matemática Inclusiva, Encontro Brasileiro de Estudantes de Pós-Graduação em Educação Matemática, Congresso Internacional de Educação Matemática and Reunión Latinoamericana de Matemática Educativa. The descriptors used were dyscalculia, disorder and learning difficulty in mathematics; as a result, a corpus with 22 articles was formed. A descriptive and interpretative analysis of the data was carried out, supported by Content Analysis, in order to learn about the mains concepts, ideas, gaps, trends and perspectives on the subject in question. Four emerging categories were established, which are: Research Methodology, Participants, Conceptualizations and Teaching. And from these, ten subcategories were elaborated namely: Theoretical Research, Practical Research, Teaching Perception, Tracking, Psychopedagogical Interventions, Conceptual Discussions, Inclusive Discourses, Cognitive Perceptions, Teaching Strategies and Diagnostic Strategies. For the theoretical basics Kosc’s work was used. The mapped publications are, for the most part, theoretical studies related to concepts and definitions inherent to the disorder itself, cognitive and inclusive perceptions, and the analysis of other scientific productions. Those of a practical nature refer to Field Research and Case Studies. The investigations showed that, after individual psychopedagogical interventions, students with this type of disorder showed advances in learning. The analysis showed that there is a need for more research, mainly empirical, as well as on brain functioning, diagnostic strategies and learning. Furthermore, the Developmental Dyscalculia can have consequences on the individual’s personal and professional life, and studies from this perspective are still incipient, requiring further in-depth and discernment. Thus, this State of the Art contributed to understanding aspects peculiar to this topic and made it possible to indicate directions and delimitations for future research.
