Math Language Therapy
Patterns to 10
Goal: The goal of math therapy, is to turn a victim of dyscalculia into a powerful master of the language of mathematics, fluid in problem-solving, and the efficient decoding, translation, processing, and encoding of quantitative information.
Dyscalculia.org offers training for teachers, administrators, parents, and individuals.

- Pandemic relief for students needing effective math instruction at home + unlimited training for schools, parents, and staff.
- Guaranteed learning outcomes. 6-session minimum
- Homeschool Advising Program (monthly fee)
How it Works
With each session, students demonstrate mastery of new understanding and skills.
- Instant gratification provides motivation and momentum.
- Students quickly experience success, which is a foundation for deep understanding and rapid learning.
- There is no emphasis on memorization.
- Students experience in order to understand and remember.
- Students quickly gain confidence in their ability to interpret and process quantitative information.
- Parents are trained with their student, if possible.
- Students are required to practice new skills by producing documentary demonstrations of understanding, which become learning assets, stored in a student's e-portfolio.
