Published by Wiley
Written by a teacher with many years' experience of teachingmathematics to primary school dyslexic and dyspraxic children witha wide range of abilities, this book is designed to be a practicalteaching guide. It offers detailed guidance and specific teachingsuggestions to all specialist teachers, support teachers, classroomteachers and parents who either directly teach mathematics todyslexic and dyspraxic children or who support the mathematicsteaching programmes of dyslexic or dyspraxic children.

Although the book has grown out of teaching experience it isalso informed by widely acknowledged contemporary and internationalresearch, which explores the cognitive aspects of learningmathematics and tries to understand why it is that some childrenfail to learn mathematics.

Many of the teaching principles described in the text havespecific and quite far-reaching implications. The theoreticalarguments should therefore also be of interest to special needsco-ordinators, heads of maths departments, head teachers or otherprofessionals who are responsible for designing or modifying themaths learning programmes of children with special learning andmaths difficulties. In more general terms, the book hopes tocontribute to the broad discussion of the cognitive features andeducational needs of dyslexic and dyspraxic children.
