More Trouble with Maths acknowledges that there are many reasons why children and adults are unable to function mathematically. Difficulties include problems with rote learning basic facts and procedures, debilitating anxiety, poor working and short-term memories and mathematics vocabulary. Central to this new edition is a range of standardised tests and diagnostic activities, including a 15 minute test of basic mathematics, a thinking style test, tests of basic fact retrieval and maths anxiety. Guiding the reader in the interpretation of tests, this new edition shows how identifying the barriers to learning is the first step in a programme of intervention. Written in an engaging and user-friendly style, Steve Chinn draws on his extensive experience and expertise to: show how to consider and appraise the many factors relating to mathematical learning difficulties explain how these factors can be investigated explore their impact on learning mathematics. Emphasising the need for a clinical approach when assessing individuals, this book shows how diagnosis and assessment can become integrated into everyday teaching. This highly practical and relevant resource is a crucial resource for anyone who wants to accurately and effectively identify the depth and nature of mathematical learning difficulties and dyscalculia.

By the time Jack was fifteen he was addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs, was hanging out with rock stars in LA and living a life that any teenager would aspire to. And then The Osbournes turned him into a global celebrity. But as much as Jack enjoyed his fame, underneath it all he was still an awkward teenager, using his sense of humour as a shield. And with fame and money came a greater access to drugs - his addictions took a firmer hold on him and his behaviour was soon out of control. In 21 Years Gone Jack writes with brutal frankness about his descent into addiction and the low point he reached when Sharon was diagnosed with cancer. Scared that his mum might die, Jack retreated further into his alcoholic shell, hating who he was, hating what he did. Every night he would get into bed and pray for God to take his life. When Sharon realised what was happening she told Jack he had to go to rehab - and slowly he turned his life around. Discovering a passion for extreme sports, he went from overweight and unfit to the lean young man he is today - courtesy of such adventures as running with the bulls in Pamplona, fighting a Thai martial arts expert known only as 'The Man' and scaling El Capitan, one of the world's toughest climbs. By turns funny, disarmingly honest and moving, 21 Years Gone is the amazing story of young man who has confronted his demons and defeated them.

This new book by authors Jane Emerson and Patricia Babtie follows on from their award winning book, the Dyscalculia Assessment. Once careful assessment has identified the particular numeracy difficulties your pupils may have, the Dyscalculia Solution provides a practical teaching guide for addressing and solving those difficulties. The Dyscalculia Solution includes step-by-step instructions on how to teach pupils to use whole numbers by talking and reasoning about them, and communicating their thinking in a verbal, diagrammatic and written form. The book includes scripts to emphasise the importance of using the correct language to develop numerical thinking, as well as teaching objectives, activities and games which are important for fostering a positive attitude to numeracy. Each new concept builds on previous understanding so that new facts are derived by reasoning from known facts. The Dyscalculia Solution is ideal for use with primary school children, but can easily be adapted for older students, and is invaluable for SENCOs, TAs, educational psychologists and mainstream teachers, keen to support students with numeracy difficulties in their class. Accompanying materials in both print and electronic formats to support busy teachers by providing lesson plans and worksheets are available with this book.
