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.

  • Practical teaching ideas
  • Inclusive lesson planning
  • Links with dyslexia
  • Overcoming barriers to maths
