How to get your child help?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Today we link to a very good article that outlines step by step how to get your child assessed and helped by the schools. The process is not difficult but there are a few steps and some schools need some more convincing to help than others.

If you can’t get anywhere or do not want to wait for a full test, you can always do the online Math and Dyscalculia Screening Test at https://DyscalculiaTesting.com

Causes of Developmental Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Interesting article from the Centre for Neuroscience in Education. Their view:

Overall, there is substantial evidence to suggest that there is no unique functional impairment at the heart of developmental dyscalculia, but that several cognitive functions may be implicated. Consequently, at the CNE maths group we adopt a multi-computational view of dyscalculia; rather than focusing on the search for a unitary underlying cause of dyscalculia, we aim to identity whether the condition can be related to individual variability in specified components of several cognitive functions such as memory and attentional processes.

It is concluded that difficulty with “number sense” results from the extended demands on executive
control in learning inverse dynamics models associated with cerebellar inner speech related to the second tier of
abstraction (numbers) of the infant’s primitive physics.

Math Anxiety and what can be done about it?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

A conference was held and this was one of the tips by a specialist. Please read the whole article in the link and download the conference papers for much more information.

I use Facebook for setting up study groups for my non-specialist students. My rationale is to address anxiety by connecting with students without intruding into their personal territory i.e. becoming their Facebook friends. Facebook allows academics to use an online system for posting topics for discussions, addressing students’ queries, uploading course material and monitoring their progress. These study groups are easy to set up and promote inclusive education. It is a platform students are used to and view positively.
