'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

With over 200 activities and 40 games this book is designed to support learners aged 6 to 14 years, who have difficulty with maths and numbers. Ronit Bird provides a clear explanation of dyscalculia, and presents the resources in a straightforward fashion.

New to this second edition:

- even more activities, games and printable resources

- additional material, provided on the easily accessible CD-ROM

- a table indicating which difficulties are supported by which activities

- material that caters for a wider range of abilities and ages.

This book and accompanying CD meet the needs of specialist and non-specialist teachers who are working with learners with difficulties in maths in mainstream settings. It is equally useful as a resource to recommend to parents who want to support their children's learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! 16 Feb 2008
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good help 23 July 2012
By Mum
Format:Paperback
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!
