SASC Guidance on Dyscalculia: SASC Authorised
To help specialist teachers/assessors to review the SASC guidance on Dyscalculia and how to use this guidance to inform practice.
The course will consider the background to how and why the new SASC Guidance on Assessment of Dyscalculia, Specific Learning Difficulties and Maths Difficulties was developed, then explore and explain the academic literature that underpins it. Then through a case study it will review how assessment tools can be used to identify maths difficulties.
The theoretical approach for assessing maths difficulties and Dyscalculia is outlined in the new SASC Guidance and in the joint SASC/BDA definition of Dyscalculia.
