SENsible SENCO & IDL - Dyscalculia, How I Learned to Stop Worrying

8th Sep 2022 |
16:00pm - 17:00pm (GMT)


We are delighted to join Abigail Hawkins to discuss Dyscalculia – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Sum 

On Thursday 8th September, Luke Butcher from the IDL software development team will expand on the last session, covering the current science in dyscalculia – what it is, how we think it works and what we can do to help dyscalculic learners. Last time we covered methods of screening for learning difficulties and if you missed this webinar then you can watch the on-demand video here. In this presentation we go into numerical processing problems in-depth, the affective domain and how digital learning can help overcome numeracy anxiety. IDLS (International Dyslexia Solutions) provides innovative intervention tools for learners with numeracy and literacy difficulties. With an audio-visual, scaffolded approach to support learners with a range of continuum-type difficulties, we provide engaging digital tools for learners with a variety of processing difficulties as well as precision tools such as our new Multiplication Table Checker (MTC). 

This session will cover:

  • What is dyscalculia and how does it work? 
  • Identifying and dealing with numeracy anxiety and the affective domain. 
  • Ways to support learners with dyscalculia and the impact of guidance from an early age. 
  • The importance of working memory, numerosity and how dyscalculia impacts both.  Attendees will gain access to our Numeracy and Literacy Screeners for free as well as additional resources
