This is a two-hour ”Demonstration” style workshop for parents and interested persons.

- The cost to children who have dyscalculia is a personal cost. It affects their self-confidence, self-esteem and can cause maths anxiety.
- This workshop will explain the neuroscience behind dyscalculia and address many of the issues it causes.

- Dyscalculia affects about 5% of the population.

- It comes with ”friends”. This is called co-morbidity. For example, about 50% of dyslexics are likely to also have dyscalculia. The problem is that, for example, if dyslexia is identified first, the child's difficulties with maths are attributed to the already identified developmental disorder (dyslexia) and so any strategies and interventions to help the dyscalculic child are not implemented.

- We will demonstrate games and activities that parents can undertake at home to help their dyscalculic children.
