With maths we use a series of shapes and
symbols to represent amounts, and what we should do with those amounts.
This causes similar problems to dyslexia, and deep-rooted confusions
between symbols, amounts and actions occur.
During a programme all arithmetic is shown visually using clay. It is easier
for a visual learner to understand something if they can pick up, move around,
cut up and squash together.
A series of maths exercises quite literally go right back to basics and build
layer by layer until it is understood where the confusions lie.
People who have difficulty with time management can discover that their weak
maths skills are closely linked to this. It is therefore possible to help adults
and children overcome two problems at the same time.
Another related issue that can be resolved along with maths issues is untidiness
as this, too, is closely related to maths.
