Tuition for Dyscalculia
Some schools refer to it as a mathematics learning disability. Doctors sometimes call it a mathematics disorder. You may even hear kids and parents call it math dyslexia. Dyscalculia and dyslexia are not the same thing.
Dyscalculia can result in underdevelopment of the brain. Dyscalculia often co-occurs with other learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and specific language impairment (SLI).
Dyscalculia can't be “cured” and in fact there are no medications that treat dyscalculia.
We follow classroom accommodation and multisensory instruction.
- Accommodations changes that remove barriers of learning
- Accommodations changes according to how kids learn, not what they learn
- We use all accommodation category such as change in presentation, response, setting, timing and scheduling
- We use multisensory instruction to teach maths. This teaching approach uses sight, touch, hearing and movement to give students different ways to learn skills and understand concepts. These techniques often teach math concepts in a logical way in which one skill builds on the next.
- Using objects to see quantities and how they change provides a concrete way of understanding how certain math concepts work. It can also help kids develop number sense and make stronger connections to what they’re learning.
