The Dyscalculia Solution represents an invaluable practical guide
to acquiring numeracy skills, for children and struggling adults
alike. The book contains exercises focusing on the physical
realisation of quantity and the operations that can be performed
when quantities are expressed in symbolic form. This multi-sensory
approach accords with how we now understand the brain to abstract
the concept of numeracy from our interactions with the cultural
environment. The book will prove essential for parents and teachers
