Effective Strategies for Teaching Students with Dyscalculia (VIC)

Dyscalculia is sometimes referred to as ‘the mathematical equivalent of dyslexia’. It is believed to be as common as dyslexia yet few teachers are aware of its features, its impact or strategies they could use to support and effectively teach students who struggle with Mathematics because they have this specific learning difficulty. This very practical workshop helps teachers to understand the difficulties typically experienced by these students. It provides opportunity to learn about and trial strategies and resources that can be used in supporting and effectively teaching dyscalculic students.

Workshop Overview –

  • Defining dyscalculia – its characteristics and impact
  • Assessment tools for identifying dyscalculia – interview, software and online
  • Number sense and counting – helping students to visualise numbers and their relationships
  • Calculation and place value – using manipulatives
  • Multiplication and Division – learning and reasoning from key facts, the area model, using technology
  • Problem-solving and Time – developing understanding of the language of Mathematics and time
