Developmental dyscalculia and low numeracy

Location: Ross House, Hayden Raysmith Room, 4th Floor, 247 Flinders Lane Melbourne 3000

Limited spots available - Early Bird: $45 (ends 9th June 6pm) General: $60

An introductory 2 hour 'demonstration' style workshop to help parents understanding dyscalculia, how it affects their children and to provide strategies they can apply to help.


Workshop Overview

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.

Presenters:

Ann Williams

B.Sc (Hons), Grad. Dip. Ed., Grad. Dip. App. Sci. (computing), M.E. who is a dyscalculia expert. She will concentrate on uppper primary and secondary students.

Nathalie Parry

M.Ed. (Specific Learning Difficulties), Dip Montessori, Grad Dip Teaching and Learning is an early childhood educator and primary teacher who currently lectures at Victoria University. She will concentrate on games and strategies more appropriate for early childhood and early primary students.
