Event description

Description

The training in Special Educational Needs is designed for teachers, teaching assistants, tutors and shadows. It is given in English. The training consists of a series of separate study days that can all be booked individually.

The study day on dyscalculia will start by looking at what the participants understand by the term ‘dyscalculia’ and then consider diagnostic definitions of dyscalculia.

We will look at the areas of difficulty in number sense, number symbols and executive functioning that children who are diagnosed as being dyscalculic often experience.

We will consider the skills that go into learning the number system and the importance of place value. We will also do some simple analysis of children’s calculation errors. Strategies for teaching number skills and teaching calculation systematically will be explored and some resources will also be discussed.

In the afternoon session, we will look at mathematical word problems and the challenges that may be faced by students with dyscalculia. We will break down some word problems into steps and look at the strategies and resources that may support students when approaching word problems.

Finally, we will consider visual spatial skills briefly and how to identify when a child might be struggling in this area of development and require more assessment.

Links to helpful websites, books, resources and technology will be given in the study booklet.

Lunch, refreshments and a workbook are all provided.

Bookings can also be made by invoice through www.inclusion4all.com/training
