The Dyscalculia Solution represents an invaluable practical guide to acquiring numeracy skills, for children and struggling adults alike. The book contains exercises focusing on the physical realisation of quantity and the operations that can be performed when quantities are expressed in symbolic form. This multi-sensory approach accords with how we now understand the brain to abstract the concept of numeracy from our interactions with the cultural environment. The book will prove essential for parents and teachers alike.

My initial understanding of this book is that it emphasises and focuses on teaching through the concrete, then representing things diagrammatically. This gives pupils a sound understanding of what our number and addition/subtraction/multiplication systems are representing - and the results are impressive. I use it for all abilities in my Y4 class - but this is a book that is useful for Y2-4 - and for interventions for the weakest in Y5.
This does not provide a recognised diagnosis on its own. But will help see who has issues and who has gaps or weaknesses or missed learning. That once bridged can support a learner hugely.
