Dyscalculia

What is Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia is often misunderstood. Children with dyscalculia are not weak in thier mathematical ability they simply require it to be taught in a different way.

 

How can I support my child?

  • Use practical resources to help children solve problems and recognise numbers. These dont have to naything fancy you can use object around the home e.g.  cars, pieces of pasta etc.
  • Practice for small amounts of time reguarly, this helps the information enter the long term memory.
  • Play lots of games such as snakes and ladders and dominoes this allows children to bebing to recognise numbers and number patterns.
  • Practice in small steps, dont rush activities the slower your child works the more they will learn.
