Too often we hear children say “I hate Maths” or parents say “I couldn’t do maths at school”? This brief talk will look at how children acquire maths skills and what are the sort of influences and experiences that impair progress in learning maths.

Brenda Ferrie - Lead Tutor Level 5 Course in Dyscalculia and Maths Learning Difficulties; Support and Intervention
I qualified as a teacher of maths but realized that many of my students who excelled at maths had difficulties with reading and writing which lead me to do my Level 7 in dyslexia. There were other students who had no difficulties with reading and writing but struggled to understand relatively simple maths concepts, which this lead me into the world of dyscalculia.
