More About the Author

Ronit Bird is a teacher whose interest in pupils with specific learning difficulties began with a focus on dyslexia. She qualified as a teacher at London University and subsequently gained a further qualification as a specialist teacher. While working with dyslexic pupils in a mainstream school, Ronit started to develop strategies and teaching activities to help support the learning of pupils who were experiencing difficulties in Maths.

Ronit has taught in both primary and secondary settings, and has worked as a SENCO in both the independent and state sectors. Ronit also ran training courses on dyscalculia for Harrow subject leaders, teachers and teaching assistants as part of the Harrow Dyscalculia Project, working in an advisory capacity with the participating schools. She currently works as a teacher and as a contributor to professional development courses.

Ronit can be contacted through her website www.ronitbird.com where you will also find a list of Top Ten Tips for Parents and a forum through which you can discuss problems or suggestions with others who are interested in dyscalculia.

Product Description

Review

'The new dyscalculia toolkit has a great introduction that is broken down into manageable chunks, brilliant explanations and interesting reading. The new tables explain what each game entails at the start of the book, making planning and using the toolkit much easier and effective especially if short on time! Very enjoyable to read, and highly recommended'
-Karen Jones, Chartered Educational Psychologist, The Educational Guidance Service


I particularly like the way the author promotes talk at every stage, vocalising the learning process for and with the student. I found The Dyscalculia Toolkit easy and enjoyable to read and full of practical ideas which would be accessible to the less experienced as well as the more practiced in working with children diagnosed as dyscalculic. (Heather Casey Dyslexia Review)

I think it should be on every SENCO’s shelf, if not every teacher’s, as these activities should not just be given to the strugglers; there is a raft of good ideas in this book, and it even comes with a CD-ROM with many more ideas and printable resources to accompany many of the activities.   (Andrew Jeffrey)

Format: Paperback
Finally, a book which understands! This book is full of pain-free games and activities which show that the author really gets dyscalculia. Things are broken down well so there are opportunities to build up basic understanding without getting bogged down and overwhelmed - and never a worksheet in sight. Now my daughter is happy to sit down and do maths with me. I'm really delighted with this - it has filled a real gap.

Ronit Bird, if you are reading this, THANK YOU!!

This is really good value for money as there is so much in it to help the dyscalculic learner. I am a teacher struggling to know what to do with a dyscalculic learner and this book has given me endless ideas with minimal resources to buy. Great!

This book is a great help in knowing how to help my daughter. It's written for teachers so some of it is more than a parent needs but it's good to know what level to aim games and learning at!

Loads to read up on! Plenty of suggestions and games to encourage maths learning without it being too formal. I hope that it helps me too! Will be trying it out at begining of term.
