Using finger counting is not all bad

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

See what Jo Boaler has to say about it:

Stopping students from using their fingers when they count could, according to the new brain research, be akin to halting their mathematical development. Fingers are probably one of our most useful visual aids, and the finger area of our brain is used well into adulthood. The need for and importance of finger perception could even be the reason that pianists, and other musicians, often display higher mathematical understanding than people who don’t learn a musical instrument.

ADHD abuse

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

from a tweet:

My son has a misdiagnosis of ADHD to qualify for special education in math because the state doesn’t recognize dyscalculia as a thing. zero s*** about her needs or education.

This is very unfortunately and that school district or state education department would do well to follow the Dyscalculia Awareness training at http://DyscalculiaAware.org
