Mathematics Learning Difficulties

Summary

This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of the characteristics of mathematics learning difficulties including dyscalculia. Dyscalculia is an innate difficulty in learning or comprehending mathematics. Students with Dyscalculia have trouble understanding numbers, learning how to manipulate numbers, learning mathematical facts, and a number of other related difficulties. The DfES (2001) defines dyscalculia as ‘ a condition that affects the ability to acquire arithmetical skills. Dyscalculic learners may have difficulty understanding simple number concepts, lack an intuitive grasp of numbers, and have problems learning number facts and procedures. Even if they produce a correct answer or use a correct method, they may do so mechanically and without confidence.’ Workshop participants will review a range of practical strategies that will support these children in their mathematics and numeracy development, both in and out of the classroom.
