Maths Difficulties – Identification and Practical Solutions:
Presented by Judy Hornigold.
BSc, PGCSpE, AMBDA, FHEA – Associate Tutor British Dyslexia Association (BDA).
Audience: Teachers, Tutors and related professionals.
This training will look at the reasons why so many children struggle with maths, including dyscalculia and maths anxiety. It will then move on to look at a range of strategies that will support these children including techniques such as visualisation and bar modelling.
How to get the most out of concrete manipulatives will also be explored.
The training will be very hands on with plenty of practical activities that practitioners will be able to implement straight away in their teaching.
The training will refer to up to date research in this area, from practitioners and researchers including Prof. Steve Chinn, Prof. Brian Butterworth and Prof. Jo Boaler.
