Dyscalculia and Yoga

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

In Kundalini Yogic philosophy, dyslexia (and perhaps dyscalculia) are viewed as a disorder of internal communication. One part of the brain does not convey information correctly to another part. The remedy: practice a specific Kundalini yoga kriya every day.

A kriya in Kundalini yoga is a combination of posture, head position, hand placement, eye placement, breathing and / or mantra recitation.

UNESCO about Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

In our modern, digital society, difficulties with numbers and arithmetic can have profoundly negative consequences on educational outcomes, career prospects and overall quality of life.

This brief arises from Science of Learning fellowships, funded by UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). The IBE-UNESCO/IBRO Science of Learning Fellowships aim to support and translate key neuroscience research on learning and the brain to educators, policymakers, and governments.

Executive Summary

  • In the 21st century, lack of adequate numeracy skills can have profound negative consequences for educational success, career prospects and overall quality of life;
  • Developmental Dyscalculia (DD) is a brain-based condition that leads to low numeracy skills in the context of otherwise normal intelligence and educational opportunities;
  • Because of its documented brain basis, efforts towards developing effective ways to remediate DD can benefit from neuroscience findings.
  • The branch of neuroscience devoted to shedding light on the development of brain processes supporting typical (and atypical) learning, shows that DD can be the result of dysfunctions in multiple brain systems for math knowledge;
  • Training programs designed to ‘stimulate’ multiple aspects of math knowledge acquisition and the brain systems subserving it may, therefore, yield the best outcomes to effectively remediate math deficits in children with DD.

Easy is a four letter word

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Teachers, parents and tutors will use the word “easy” often. “why don’t you try this one, this one is easy” or “let’s start with an easy exercise”. It is mostly meant to set the student at ease and relax them, but with students who have dyscalculia this can play our the wrong way as explained in the article in our link for today.

Dyscalculia and ADHD are independent and should be treated that way

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

This is not a new study but we highlight it today just to give the conclusions some more attention. The researchers confirmed that the their findings support the hypothesis that ADHD and dyscalculia are independently transmitted in families and are etiologically distinct. These results reinforce the current identification approach to these disorders and underscore the need for separate identification and treatment strategies for children with both conditions.

Help your kids plan, train their brain

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Researchers find that children who plan well and resist impulses tend to have parents who allow freedom within consistently enforced limits. Free choice affords practice in planning. But the need to conform to household rules means children also learn to curb their impulses.

Why is Dyscalculia so unknown?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Good article by Dr Nancy Doyle in Forbes magazine. She talks not specifically about Dyscalculia but about neurodiversity in general and tries to explain why is it so unknown yet.

She states it this way” Neuroscience is a young discipline. We’re still in the process of mapping the brain. We don’t know much more about human neurology than the anatomists of the 19th century knew about the lungs liver and heart when it comes to functionality.”

The bullies are gone

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

The rapid transition to online school — for those who hadn’t made that choice themselves — has come with many downsides, from increasing inequity to the “Covid slide,” in which children lose some of this year’s learning, becoming less prepared to advance.But after millions of schoolchildren suddenly transferred to cyber school, some are finding a surprising upside: Complicated social dynamics can simplify, sometimes evaporate, as they learn online.

Parental involvement is key

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

In our link of the day a post about an interview with Ms Eunice Araba Turkson, an Educational Consultant in the United States, who highlights the importance of parental involvement to the success of inclusive education.

Effective remediation takes a team, teachers/parents/school officials/tutors all play a role, also the pediatrician plays a role and may need to advice on medical treatment of attention issues.
