Professor Steve Chinn, PhD, FRSA, editor of 'The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties'
This is a comprehensive and accessible overview of the many factors involved in understanding dyscalculia, from definitions to legislation to intervention.
Jane Trapmore, Cornwall Dyslexia Service
What a great book! Divided into two clear sections, the first half gives a very accessible and useful overview and explanation of a range of difficulties impacting on numeracy. The second half of the book then focuses on 'how to teach it' in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step layout using verbal, visual, and multisensory strategies useful for so many learners. It also includes a really useful chapter for parents and carers on how to support their children at home. I would be happy to recommend it to my colleagues in school.

Babtie and Emerson have made their way through a thicket of jargon-dense research and come out the other side with a one-stop shop for understanding dyscalculia. The title is too modest. Understanding Dyscalculia and Numeracy Difficulties does so much more than make sense of this little understood condition, it provides practical advice for working through it that in our modern, math-filled world has the power to make all the difference in your student's life.
