Course Description

You wouldn't believe how many different stages and steps that our young brains need to go through when learning number skills. Understanding how and when these different number skills develop in children is very important for understanding how to support and teach maths. This course, written by Educational Psychologists, will help every educator appreciate the importance and complexity of early number development as well the importance of spotting difficulties early. Unfortunately maths is one of those subjects where if you miss out on a small piece of development you are most likely going to fall further and further behind. This course will not only arm you with the knowledge you need to support maths development but also methods to assess it as well as risk factors associated with poor maths achievement.
