(2018)

### Abstract

Written by a world authority on maths difficulties in children, this accessible guide provides tried and tested visual strategies and tailored techniques to help teachers and parents support children with SpLDs who need help with maths.

Drawing on the latest research, into areas such as cognition and meta-cognition, along with the authors' decades of teaching experience, the book offers insight into how maths learning difficulties, including dyslexia, dyscalculia and maths anxiety, make maths difficult. Each chapter looks at foundational areas of maths learning that children may struggle with, from early number experiences to basic addition and subtraction, times tables, measurement and more. Essential reading for any teacher, learning assistant or parent supporting children with maths.

Steve Chinn is an independent consultant, researcher and internationally renowned author and regularly presents papers, contributes to conferences worldwide (over 30 countries) and delivers training courses for psychologists, teachers, parents and support assistants.
