Yes we will most likely all make some New Year’s resolutions but today I don’t want to talk about the “loose weight” or “move more” kind of resolution, today I want to highlight the need to support your student in their troubles with math.
Too many excuses are generally made for troubles that students experience in class with math.
“Math is just not their thing”, “They are still very playful”, “They’ll grow into it”, “This is just not a topic they are interested in”.
All excuses that could mask a genuine issue with the math learning for your student. This can lead to them not liking going to math class and create anxieties.
You want to know exactly what is happening and if there would be the need for additional support.
So take advantage of our online Math and Dyscalculia Screening Test and make it your New Year’s resolution to find out what is going on. The test is priced at only $27.50 make it accessible for most. Shortly after completing the test an approximate five page report is emailed to you.

When your child is not doing very well in Math, please do not brush it off with “math is just not their thing” or “they will grow into it”.
Chances are that your child may have a Math Learning Disability or Dyscalculia. When your child does not start reading fast enough, don’t you take immediate action? You wouldn’t say “oh reading is not their thing”. No you would investigate and get help.
Likewise with falling behind in Math, you need to take action, get it assessed and get them the help they deserve.
Even when you are an adult and have always had trouble with math, there is something you can still do to change this. Get an assessment ( an easy quick start is at https://dyscalculiatesting.com ) and get helped to advance your career or just be more comfortable going through life that is increasingly made up of algorithms and numbers.
In the general population there is about one in fifteen people that have this learning disability but it is rather unknown and thus does not often get diagnosed at school yet.
Take action, make sure you know what is happening and if there is a reason to get further help.
When your student(s) have been struggling with math it could be Dyscalculia.
Let’s not wait too long and provide the support they need and deserve.

Children learn by doing
Research in education tells us over and over that hands on activities have more impact than verbal or written explanations alone.
Inexpensive manipulatives and pictures are used as key elements to illustrate math concepts.
The connection with your child’s everyday life experience makes it all sink in. Safely anchored in his memory, the information can be retrieved and applied in future situations.
Download our free guidelines and templates for games, outright playful and more serious activities to develop the math centers in your child’s/childrens brain. Have fun!
