Dyscalculia Guidance is a practical manual for teachers to help them support pupils with dyscalculia and provide the ‘next steps’ once dyscalculia has been identified.

This manual gives an definition and description of dyscalculia, guidelines for helping dyscalculic pupils in the classroom, teaching strategies to help them make progress in maths learning and specific activities for use in the classroom.  All this is underpinned by an understanding of the emotional well-being of dyscalculic pupils.

Once dyscalculic tendencies have been identified using our Dyscalculia Screener, Dyscalculia Guidance provides the next crucial steps. The UK's expert in dyscalculia provides a detailed explanation of dyscalculia to aid teachers’ understanding of the issue.

A highly experienced classroom practitioner provides teachers with specific strategies and activities designed to improve pupils' progress in maths.
