Dyscalculia activities 1: addition to division
Formerly named Practical Activities for Children with Dyscalculia
It is vital that children who have difficulties with maths not only get help in school, but that they also practise their maths at home with a parent. By working through the activities in this book children who have fundamental problems in handling the most basic of mathematical concepts will learn how to handle numbers, sequences, addition, multiplication, subtraction and division. The book takes the child from the concept of higher and lower to division by numbers over 12.
The Parents Edition of Practical Activities links directly with the work that children undertake through the Schools Edition of this book, and allows the parent to undertake short homework activities with the child, without the child having to take home photocopied pages each day.
Having their own copy of the Parents Edition of this book allows parents to see how the work progresses and helps them understand the way in which the course develops. This knowledge means they become more highly motivated in helping their children and are able to encourage the child by stressing how far the child has come. It also means that where the child rapidly gains an understanding of a point, the parent is able to move forward in the book and find new work for the child, rather than having to abandon the work because he or she only has one or two pages photocopied from the Schools Edition.
Parents need no special knowledge of maths to be able to work on this book with their child, just a basic ability to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Parents will, however, need a supply of coloured counters for use within the multi-sensory activities.
