About Rob's presentation
Dyscalculia, a specific learning difficulty affecting mathematical abilities, remains a critical concern in adult maths education. This virtual seminar, led by Rob Jennings of The Dyscalculia Network, will delve into the complexities of Dyscalculia, shedding light on its definition, prevalence, and effective intervention strategies, including the crucial role of maths games in fostering understanding and engagement. Identifying indicators of Dyscalculia and discussing the "Jenga effect" on mathematical learning, the seminar underscores the challenges students face and the necessity of creating a secure foundation in maths education. Join us to learn more about Dyscalculia, related findings, and to discuss these findings with colleagues from ALM.
