Do you think of yourself as a ‘math person’? Do you have a child who is struggling with math?

In this episode we discuss how to make math accessible to your dyslexic child. Our guest, Christopher Woodin, explains why developing number sense, part- to- whole understanding and multimodal learning are essential for transferring math skills to real life. We compare traditional teaching methods to alternative methods and why having the courage to think outside the box works! Be sure to listen to the end- this episode is packed with tons of helpful examples!

The Relationship Between Math and Language                                                                                                                We often define dyslexia as an "unexpected difficulty in reading;" however a dyslexic student may also have difficulty memorizing math facts and struggle with working memory and symbolic memory. The specific skills that an educational evaluation measures to determine where language glitches, both written and verbal, occur can also be helpful in predicting where math breakdowns might occur.  Woodin has found that knowing whether a dyslexic child struggles with things like word retrieval, memory, sensory integration, sequencing, and processing speed can provide teachers with helpful clues about the child's potential math challenges.  Using this knowledge, we can also develop strategies to address an individual student's struggles in math.
