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.
