Mathematics for dyslexics: including dyscalculia
This book, first published in 1993 has become the standard teaching text for mathematics and dyslexia. It provides a background understanding of why difficulties may occur and structured ideas for addressing the individual needs of the learner. It also outlines a detailed diagnostic protocol, which has been the basis for subsequent protocols from other workers in this field.
Topics such as accessing basic facts, when unable to retrieve them from memory, are addressed mathematically, rather than by some less developmental method such as singing the facts.
This third edition has been expanded to take into account new developments in teaching mathematics to dyslexic and dyscalculic pupils. The four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are all dealt with using linked and mutually supporting methods. The development of maths from basic understanding of number to algebra is covered in a coherent and inter-related manner.
Mathematics for Dyslexics Third Edition provides a unique mix of background theory and practical classroom ideas that are structured and mathematically developmental. It is written in a jargon-free, accessible style presenting maths in a non-threatening way.
