Description This Unit examines the processes involved in mathematical thinking and how they link to aspects of memory and attention. The difficulties that learners with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties can have with numeracy are explained. This unit explores theory, offers some practical ideas and provides the practitioner with the fresh perspective necessary to effectively use structured, cumulative, multisensory teaching to promote numeracy development in learners where it is stalled or significantly delayed.
