Sign up for our Members’ Area and get access to 12 training videos and other additional resources.
Once you’ve bought your Beat Dyscalculia packs we want you to be able to get the most from them, and so we’ve created a video training course that goes through all the essential elements (such as the Addacus and Number Strips) and looks at how to use the resources to teach certain key topics (such as time and times tables). The course is designed so that you can work your way through it, from start to finish, in your own time, or you can dip in and out to refresh your memory. Ideally, we’d recommend that you use the videos to supplement the face to face classroom training that we offer (with our founder and creator, Celia Stone), and as an additional training tool for you and your colleagues.

Beat Dyscalculia Accredited Trainers
However, we’re also starting to create a network of Beat Dyscalculia accredited trainers and would like to hear from you if you are interested in finding out more.
Each of the 12 videos was filmed with local teachers who volunteered to be trained by Celia, and were learning about Beat Dyscalculia for the first time. Each one is between about 5 and 15 minutes long and is designed for you to watch and work through the exercises shown for yourself. Key topics and teaching points are highlighted with pop-up captions, and each video is split into sections covering each pack (1, 2 and 3), so that you can find the bits that are relevant to you.
The videos are available via a new secure Members’ Section of our website for a yearly subscription of £180. This can be bought via our shop. However, you can watch the first video for free here, which gives you an introduction to and overview of the Beat Dyscalculia programme. Once you’ve subscribed, you can access this section whenever you want, as often as you want. Plus we’ll use this section to give you access to other resources such as electronic versions of the CDs and books, training hand-outs, and additional ideas and resources as we create them. Let us know if there’s anything you’d particularly like to see in this section.
