A complete assessment tool for investigating maths difficulties in children, this book also provides advice for implementing the findings into teaching plans. Dyscalculia is a specific learning disability involving difficulty in acquiring numeracy skills. A significant group of children fail to progress beyond counting in ones; they cannot calculate efficiently or learn their tables. This assessment tool is designed to explore which aspects of numeracy the child is struggling to acquire. The evidence from the assessment can then be used to draw up a personalized teaching plan. With clear, step-by-step instructions alongside photocopiable or downloadable assessment sheets, "The Dyscalculia Assessment" contains what you need to pinpoint a child's difficulties with numeracy, and use that information to help the child progress. The Assessment is ideal for use with primary school children, but can easily be adapted for older or younger students, and is invaluable for SENCOs, TAs, educational psychologists and teacher's wishing to support students with maths difficulties in their class.
