Mathematics for Dyslexics

This book, first published in 1993 has become the standard teaching text for mathematics and dyslexia.

Mathematics for Dyslexics

Mathematics for Dyslexics: Including Dyscalculia, 3rd Edition discusses the factors that contribute to the potential difficulties many dyslexic learners may have with mathematics, and suggests ways of addressing these difficulties. The first chapters consider the theoretical background. The later chapters look at practical methods, which may help dyslexic learners. The book is designed to be comprehensive and to help teachers, support assistants, and parents understand the learner and to learn a range of skills and thus develop confidence and competence in working with dyslexic pupils.

Dyscalculia Pocketbook

A final resource section and maths glossary complete the picture. As with all books in the Teachers’ Pocketbooks series, this is a practical, ‘how to’ guide, throughout which cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text.

Dyscalculia Pocketbook

Dyscalculia is a specific learning difficulty that affects a person’s mathematical ability. It is estimated that around 6% of the population have dyscalculia, so in a typical classroom there is likely to be at least one dyscalculic learner. Research is ongoing, but we know that dyscalculia is a much deeper-rooted problem than just ‘being bad at maths’. This Pocketbook looks at the difficulties faced by pupils with dyscalculia and explores the support strategies that work. The author begins by summarising and explaining what we currently know about dyscalculia. Key indicators are described, along with various ways of screening and assessing to identify students with this SpLD. There’s a helpful chapter on ‘maths anxiety’ and a central practical section on teaching strategies that will help learners to work around the obstacles dyscalculia presents. Details of the three components of a mathematical idea and the six levels of learning - intuitive, concrete, pictorial, abstract, application and communication - provide good underpinning structure. Games that help develop number sense and the ten most effective classroom approaches are also covered. A final resource section and maths glossary complete the picture. As with all books in the Teachers’ Pocketbooks series, this is a practical, ‘how to’ guide, throughout which cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text.

Extending Support for Key Stage 2 and 3 Dyslexic Pupils  their Teachers and Support Staff

"This isn't learning: this is fun!" - dyslexic pupil "Fantastic ideas that engage learners in their learning: thank you!" - Teaching Assistant "I like finding tactics which help me win!" dyslexic pupil "My son is now asking to play spelling games!" - parent "I like playing homework games with my dad." - dyslexic pupil "Its easy to adapt a game to suit different topics." Teacher "Things aren't so difficult now I know how to make hard things fun." dyslexic pupil Dragonfly Games is designed for use with small groups of dyslexic pupils. These practical and varied resources can be used inside and outside of the classroom to encourage over-learning and revision of curriculum topics. Stimulating and fun to do, the games help pupils: Overcome specific barriers to learning through the use of experience, over-learning and discovery Master skills beyond those of literacy and numeracy development, including thinking skills, tactical strategies, sequential application and gamesmanship. Devise their own games, developing their ability to use varied methods of application, useful for overcoming learning weaknesses within their own specific profile. . Fully updated in its second edition, this book builds on the success of the author’s Dragonfly Worksheets, as featured in her previous book Supporting Dyslexia Pupils Across the Curriculum and can be used independently or in conjunction this resource. Dragonfly Games further extends the practitioner's portfolio of materials designed to successfully and effectively support the dyslexic learner.

Dyslexia  Dyspraxia and Mathematics

Written by a teacher with many years' experience of teaching mathematics to primary school dyslexic and dyspraxic children with a wide range of abilities, this book is designed to be a practical teaching guide. It offers detailed guidance and specific teaching suggestions to all specialist teachers, support teachers, classroom teachers and parents who either directly teach mathematics to dyslexic and dyspraxic children or who support the mathematics teaching programmes of dyslexic or dyspraxic children. Although the book has grown out of teaching experience it is also informed by widely acknowledged contemporary and international research, which explores the cognitive aspects of learning mathematics and tries to understand why it is that some children fail to learn mathematics. Many of the teaching principles described in the text have specific and quite far-reaching implications. The theoretical arguments should therefore also be of interest to special needs co-ordinators, heads of maths departments, head teachers or other professionals who are responsible for designing or modifying the maths learning programmes of children with special learning and maths difficulties. In more general terms, the book hopes to contribute to the broad discussion of the cognitive features and educational needs of dyslexic and dyspraxic children.
