Lecturers, why waste time waiting for the post arrive?

'The new dyscalculia toolkit has a great introduction that is broken down into manageable chunks, brilliant explanations and interesting reading. The new tables explain what each game entails at the start of the book, making planning and using the toolkit much easier and effective especially if short on time! Very enjoyable to read, and highly recommended'
-Karen Jones, Chartered Educational Psychologist, The Educational Guidance Service

With over 200 activities and 40 games this book is designed to support learners aged 6 to 14 years, who have difficulty with maths and numbers. Ronit Bird provides a clear explanation of dyscalculia, and presents the resources in a straightforward fashion.

New to this second edition:

- even more activities, games and printable resources

- additional material, provided on the easily accessible CD-ROM

- a table indicating which difficulties are supported by which activities

- material that caters for a wider range of abilities and ages.

This book and accompanying CD meet the needs of specialist and non-specialist teachers who are working with learners with difficulties in maths in mainstream settings. It is equally useful as a resource to recommend to parents who want to support their children's learning.
