p>Ronit Bird is a teacher whose interest in pupils with specific learning difficulties began with a focus on dyslexia. She qualified as a teacher at London University and subsequently gained a further qualification as a specialist teacher of learners with SpLD. While working with dyslexic pupils in a mainstream school, Ronit started to develop strategies and teaching activities to help support the learning of pupils who were experiencing difficulties in maths.
Author: Ronit Bird has taught in both primary and secondary settings, and has worked as a SENCO in both independent and state sectors. As part of the Harrow Dyscalculia Project in 2006-2010, Ronit ran training courses on dyscalculia for subject leaders, teachers and teaching assistants, later working in an advisory capacity with participating schools across the harrow LEA. Ronit currently works as a teacher and continues to create and deliver professional development courses for teachers. Over the past few years Ronit has developed a growing interest in making demonstration videos for teachers and parents.
“Ronit Bird is an extraordinary teacher with a lifetime of experience teaching dyscalculic children the basic principles of arithmetic. Here she makes this experience available to teachers and parents in a clear and systematic way. She provides a wealth of activities and games that will engage and stimulate the learner, and that rarely need more than paper, pencil and dice. Most importantly, she explains the learning goal of each exercise, and provides notes to the teacher about what to look for, and what to avoid. This book will make dyscalculics and their teachers happy.” Professor Brian Butterworth
