Understanding Developmental Dyscalculia — 5 strategies from a Psychologist

Register Now

Around 5% of students have persistent difficulties learning numerical and mathematical skills.

Struggling with math skills can have a negative impact on students' academic success. But the research showing why some learners struggle with math lags behind the research on reading and writing difficulties.

In this webinar, Dr. Ansari will discuss:

  • What we know about the potential causes of Math learning difficulties.
  • How dyscalculia relates to other learning challenges, such as Dyslexia and Math anxiety.
  • Evidence-based approaches to screening learners who might be at risk.

You'll leave with research-based strategies for helping students compensate for and overcome their mathematical learning difficulties.
