This book gives a clear overview of dyscalculia that teachers encounter in their classrooms, and provides a wide range of appropriate intervention strategies for them to use. All the issues are covered in a direct and user-friendly way which teachers, teaching assistants and parents will appreciate. Readers are taken through the cognitive process that underpins success in mathematics and given examples of why difficulties occur in individual students. The book is underpinned by sound pedagogy but retains a straightforward, accessible style. Step-by-step guidance through the maths curriculum plus action plans in each section make the ideas in this book achievable in any classroom setting.
