In a letter sent to the Prime Minister on 1 December 2020, the Council for Science and Technology (CST) shared six recommendations exploring how this research can help to nurture the development of school learners around key skills, such as reading, writing, spelling and numeracy. The letter is in line with research published in 2019 by education experts from Loughborough and Ulster universities around the importance of identifying the difficulties that learners with dyslexia, dyscalculia and co-occurring difficulties face with numeracy and provide educators advice and training on strategies that can help learners improve their mathematical reasoning.
Developing Numeracy Skills in Learners with Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Level 4 course
With the ongoing worldwide pandemic, we know educators have been looking for resources and courses to help support learners develop their mathematical skills. This Level 4 online course may be beneficial if dyslexia and dyscalculia are of interest and if you are looking for a fresh perspective to effectively use structured, cumulative, multi-sensory teaching to promote numeracy development in learners. This course is ideal if you are working in a primary or secondary education setting, either currently or previously within the last two years.
