Multisensory Maths

Maths can be an area of difficulty for many students and particularly those with dyslexia.  The emphasis of Ron Yoshimoto's math program is conceptual understanding as opposed to rote learning.
Some aspects that may be covered:
  • From concrete or manipulatives to semi-abstract or drawing to abstract.
  • Addition: simple addition, regrouping, and commutative property of addition.
  • Subtraction: owing and having (extension to negative and positive numbers), regrouping.
  • Multiplication: counting a number a certain number of times; skip counting, building and drawing multiplication problems, regrouping, and transition to traditional.
  • Division: how many times is a number contained in another number; build/drawing division problems & regrouping.
