Practical and Positive Ways to Support Learners with Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is not about intelligence, nor is it about having access to proper teaching. However, this condition does cause problems for learners, not just in school but in everyday life, where they need to use maths concepts. Children with dyscalculia will find mathematics difficult, puzzling and frustrating, and this course will provide plenty of practical ideas help support them.

About this course

This course will explore some of the important and complex issues around dyscalculia, giving teachers and support staff confidence to support learners who struggle in maths. We will provide a series of practical ideas that blend into quality maths teaching, avoiding additional workload.

Course objectives:

  • Identifying the various and variable symptoms of dyscalculia; what makes learners struggle in maths; and how knowing this helps us make ‘reasonable adjustments’
  • Practical approaches which include outdoor learning, visual approaches and use of music 
  • Practical approaches to dyscalculia that dovetail with existing practice and that would help all learners 


This course is suitable for all schools.

  • Senior and Middle Leaders
  • Phase and Subject Leaders
  • Class Teachers and TA's
