Dyscalculia by Glynis HannellBased on expert observations of children who experience difficulties with maths this book gives a comprehensive overview of dyscalculia, providing a wealth of information and useful guidance for any practitioner. With a wide range of appropriate and proven intervention strategies it guides readers through the cognitive processes that underpin success in mathematics and gives fascinating insights into why individual students struggle with maths. Readers are taken step-by-step through each aspect of the maths curriculum and each section includes: Examples which illustrate why particular maths difficulties occur Practical 'action plans' which help teachers optimise children's progress in mathematics This fully revised second edition will bring the new research findings into the practical realm of the classroom. Reflecting current knowledge, Glynis Hannell gives increased emphasis to the importance of training 'number sense' before teaching formalities, the role of concentration difficulties and the importance of teaching children to use strategic thinking. Recognising that mathematical learning has a neurological basis will continue to underpin the text, as this has significant practical implications for the teacher.

The Dyscalculia Solution by Jane Emerson; Patricia BabtieDyscalculia- Resources for Making Sense of Number details an intervention method developed at Emerson House School, which is evidence based. It makes best practice in special needs maths education available to mainstream schools by reproducing Emerson House techniques in a format that can be taught easily. These methods ensure young pupils acquire number sense and a positive attitude to the subject to aid their progression, and are also effective with older pupils. This systematic, mulit-sensory way of teaching was developed by the late Dorian Yeo to train children to become flexible thinkers who can recognise, generate and use numbers to slove problems. Dyscalculia- Resources for Making Sense of Number makes her expertise and methodology available more widely. Accompanying materials in both print and electronic formats to support busy teachers by providing lesson plans and worksheets are available with this book.

Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders by Robin L. Hansen (Editor); Sally J. Rogers (Editor)The accelerating advancement in research in neurodevelopmental disorders -- including autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, and more -- has enormous implications for clinical practice. Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders provides clinicians with up-to-date information on the impact these advances have on the standard of care in the range of disorders commonly encountered by both primary and subspecialist physicians. The authors, affiliated with the UC-Davis MIND Institute, explain the latest findings from the biological, behavioral, and clinical sciences in ways that are accessible to clinicians and helpful to patients and their families. Specific features include: * A uniform chapter structure that makes it easy for the reader to locate material and make comparisons between and among disorders. Each chapter addresses signs and symptoms (including onset and developmental course); epidemiology and etiology (including known genetic and environmental contributors, biological mechanisms and relevant animal models); diagnostic criteria; differential diagnosis and comorbidities; and evidence-based interventions.* The inclusion, where possible, of current draft DSM-5 diagnoses, as well as DSM-IV.* Practical focus on psychological/behavioral and medical issues, as well as other supports and resources for patients, their families, and the community.* Emphasis on current, ongoing research that holds promise for future clinical care.* Identification of new research directions and needs. * A comprehensive chapter devoted to the effects each of the neurodevelopmental disorders has on language and social communication. Replete with tables, illustrative figures, key points, and suggestions for further reading, Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders helps clinicians meet the challenge of providing the most up-to-date and effective care for their patients.
