Many dyslexic children have difficulty picking up mathematical ideas. We know they have difficulty with language, and this includes the language of maths. Difficulties with their memory make learning tables and number bonds challenging.
Children are taught in small classes by specialist teachers, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. We follow the Abacus Evolve Framework which is linked closely to the objectives of the National Curriculum.
- Using and applying mathematics
- Counting and understanding numbes
- Knowing and using number facts
- Understanding shapes
- Handling data
Multi-sensory teaching strategies using auditory, visual and kinaesthetic channels will be used for our pupils.
