Embrace technology to teach children with dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Even before the current pandemic started, this research was done to see if children with Dyscalculia who are being taught by teachers with the use of technology learned better than the ones who were being taught traditionally.

It is probably also dependent on what technology and they used the Geogebra software package here, but the outcome shows that it would be wise to embrace technology when working with children who have dyscalculia.

Top Tip for Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Created by Steve Chinn and shared by the Dyslectic Advantage, the top tip for remediation of dyscalculia in children is:

Teach them to understand

That’s right, no shortcuts, no rhymes, no songs, just good teaching and making sure they understand what is being taught so they can always reconstruct the solutions they need.

Is the abacus the answer to Developmental Dyscalculia?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Well here is some research that sounds promising:

Students with an abacus course demonstrated better performance in arithmetic computation and spatial short‐term memory after controlling for age, gender, grade, and other basic cognitive abilities. The results suggest that the abacus course could be an effective tool for DD intervention in natural education settings.

Dyscalculia signs and accommodations

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Signs of dyscalculia are not always easy to spot. Keep in mind that all kids have trouble with maths from time to time. But children with dyscalculia struggle a lot more than other children the same age. Dyscalculia is not the same as math anxiety because the latter involves strong emotions around Math.

The Eblity blog gives a great overview of the signs of Dyscalculia and the accommodations possible in class

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.

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.

Remote learning works fine for some

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

For some children the remote learning actually works fine. From a recent story on Edutopia this: “not having those everyday distractions in school has really allowed for some kids to focus on the work and not necessarily all the social things going on because some kids can’t separate that out”

Teaching math to those with learning disabilities

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Good article in our link for today with some great advice on how to work with students with learning disabilities. Here are the headlines:

  • Resist the temptation to de-emphasize language in math class, especially for English-learners and those who have language-related disabilities. De-emphasis is probably a disservice.
  • Consider how broad student labels can conceal mathematical skill. English-learners, depending on their prior schooling, and students with disabilities, depending on their specific disability, can have widely varying math abilities and knowledge.
  • Focus on what students can do rather than fixating on what they cannot.
