What our delegates say about this course

“I have enjoyed the challenge of this course. being out of studying for a while, it’s hard to get back into that way of thinking. Enjoy the input, the new terminology, the fresh perspective and the consideration for new learners.”

Why take this short course?

DACPD99– This level 4 short unit examines the processes involved in mathematical thinking and how they link to aspects of memory and attention.  The difficulties that learners with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties, particularly dyscalculia, can have with numeracy are explained.  The association of ‘number sense’ (numerosity) with dyscalculia is also examined.  The unit explores the theory, offers some practical ideas and provides the practitioner with the fresh perspective necessary to effectively use structured, cumulative, multi-sensory teaching to promote numeracy development in learners where it is stalled or significantly delayed.
