Beat Dyscalculia is the maths equivalent to Beat Dyslexia, created by members of the same team.
Beat Dyscalculia (incorporating Addacus) is a highly structured, multi-sensory numeracy programme that can be used to teach maths to children of all ages and abilities but is specifically designed as an intervention programme for children in Key Stage 1 and 2 who are struggling with the core curriculum. It is particularly effective for those with dyscalculia, dyslexia and autism. It has also been used with children in Key Stage 3 who are working below the expected levels.
The ABC of Numbers
Beat Dyscalculia has been created from the principle that:
Activities Build Concepts, and a belief that maths is a language. It is crucial therefore, that children learn the vocabulary of numbers right from the start and that they are given the opportunity to talk about and explore concepts in order to help them understand them.
