Great Number Sense app

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

We are not in the habit of promoting apps but from time to time I come across a wonderful app and will share it here anyway. This time an app that teaches Number Sense, it uses the colors and sizes of the familiar cuisenaire rods and then uses patterns and the actual numbers in a playful way to combine it all and teach children the numbers.

Effective lesson plans for math

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The ultimate goals of mathematics instruction are students understanding the material presented, applying the skills, and recalling the concepts in the future. There’s little benefit in students recalling a formula or procedure to prepare for an assessment tomorrow only to forget the core concept by next week. It’s imperative for teachers to focus on making sure that the students understand the material and not just memorize the procedures.

Here are six ways to teach for understanding in the mathematics classroom:

More on Neuro diversity

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Neurodiversity. It’s not a term that rolls off the tongue easily but it’s a concept where neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labeled with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others. Now organizations such as Microsoft and EY are piloting programs to recruit individuals who have neurological conditions such as Asperger’s which comes under the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a range of conditions that affect the way a person sees the world, processes information and interacts with other people.

Schooldistricts actively deny children support!

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Horrible news from Texas:

Over a decade ago, Texas officials arbitrarily decided what percentage of students should get special education services — 8.5 percent — and since then they have forced school districts to comply by strictly auditing those serving too many kids, a Houston Chronicle investigation has found.

Their efforts, which started in 2004 but have never been publicly announced or explained, have saved the Texas Education Agency billions of dollars but denied vital supports to children with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, epilepsy, mental illnesses, speech impediments, traumatic brain injuries, even blindness and deafness.

OK they do not mention Dyscalculia but the path is clear.
