This session, presented by Robert Jennings, is an introduction to dyscalculia and maths difficulties. Approximately 6% of the UK population has dyscalculia. Research suggests that around 24% of the population of OECD countries (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development- Skills for life study 2013) have problems with maths.
For educators, this session will include definitions, checklists, screening, assessment and teaching intervention plans.
For parents, this session will include what you might notice at home, tips on how to help and how to support key areas at home, especially for topics such as number bonds and times tables.
