$5,000 for an LD assessment?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The link for today goes to a forum of parents who complain about having to pay $5,000 for a full assessment for all learning disabilities and one asks the question if they cannot just focus on Dyslexia and Dyscalculia. Well yes and no. You can do an assessment for Dyscalculia but you need to do a “sweep” to see if there is a risk that ADHD or Dyslexia may be also a factor causing the math troubles.

$5,000 seems way overpriced, talk to us we offer better options

Good encouragement to get an assessment done when you have any doubts about the math skills of your student.

Retrieval practice

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Research has learned us that it is good to use retrieval of previously learned content to be able to long term store that information, instead of restudying it. Children with Dyscalculia need to have the “spiral review” regularly to ensure the information about math topics remains current. In our link for today a good article about retrieval practices and how it can go wrong and how to ensure you get it right.
