When teachers are confident they can help appropriately, they inspire that same confidence in their learners for maths.
Mathematics is an area in which children and young people can have problems which become a special or additional educational need. Everyone who teaches maths needs a good understanding of the particular difficulties faced by learners with dyscalculia and how to best offer support. During the training you will have the opportunity to work with materials and develop activities to take straight from the session into the classroom. It will also be the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you might have about how to support all the staff within your school in identifying and teaching learners with dyscalculia.
According to the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) around 5% of the population may have dyscalculia which suggests that there are many learners struggling in lessons right now who could be better supported.
Join us in November as we begin to:
- What is it
- How it differs from more general maths difficulties
- Approaches to identifying dyscalculia
- How to support learners using practical strategies and diferent approaches
- Which concrete materials can really help
