John Bee, from the UK, writes on TES about five principles to improve math teaching. Although not specifically written for teaching children with dyscalculia, it all makes perfect sense and builds on the idea to get children to understand what they do instead of teaching a magic trick that they can replicate.
Hear it from Mark Evans, marketing director at Direct Line Group;
That’s why I’m a firm believer in neurodiversity, which is the appreciation of divergent thinking driven by dyslexia, autism, dyscalculia, etc. Marketing, as a discipline, is being challenged to be ever more data-driven, analytical, rigorous, and left-brained, whilst retaining right-brained creativity and intuition. Everyone’s brains are wired slightly differently, and it’s a tall order for any individual to straddle both of these thinking styles, therefore, it’s marketing, as an overall function, that should manage this balance, and neurodiversity definitely has a role to play within this.
