dyscalculia and remediation and high school


Recommended Posts

I haven't looked into it thoroughly b/c things finally started clicking for dd this year.....but my personal theory is that the same kind of instruction that works for remediating dyslexia works also for dyscalculia.....


teaching, reteaching, overteaching

direct, systematic, incremental, intensive, frequent instruction


I'd search 'direct instruction' math, developmental math, transitional math and that sort of thing. While I have no evidence to support this, it would seem that montessori type activities, but with more direct instruction, would be ideal for a child who is dyscalculic. The key would be not to withdraw the support/direct instruction too soon (just like with dyslexia).
