Dyscalculia and maths learning difficulties | 1-2pm

This talk will investigate the common barriers to mathematics, from anxiety and resilience, through inefficiencies in working memory, to dyscalculia, and how these impact learning. We will look at some practical approaches, and particularly at ways that children can be supported at home to maximise the effectiveness of their learning.

Using technology for accessibility | 2:30-3:30pm

We will look at practical ways to support students and encourage independence. Be it literacy or maths, inside or outside the classroom or even in exam situations; this session will explore how Texthelp tools support students wherever learning happens.
