The Dyscalculia Toolkit: Supporting Learning Difficulties in Maths
This collection of 200 teaching activities and 40 games to use with pupils who struggle with maths is based on the author's experience in schools, working with dyslexic, dyspraxic and dyscalculic pupils, but all the suggested strategies are equally suitable for teaching the basics of numberacy to any pupil ages 7 to 14.
The toolkit covers:
- Early number work with numbers under 10
- Basic calculations with numbers above 10
- Place value
- Times tables, multiplication and division
The activities and games provided in this book can be used with individuals, pairs or small groups of pupils, and the CD accompanying the book contains printable and photocopiable resources.
The Dyscalculia Toolkit is suitable both for teachers and teaching assistants with no specialist background in either maths or special educational needs, as well as the experienced professionals looking for resources to share with colleagues and parents.
Ronit Bird works as a teacher and as a contributor to professional development courses for teachers on dyscalculia. She is the author of two books designed specifically for pupils with maths difficulties: The Dyscalculia Toolkit (details above), and the upcoming Overcoming Difficulties with Number (available October 2009).
