“The authors have made their way through a thicket of jargon-dense research and come out the other side with a one-stop shop for understanding dyscalculia. It does so much more than make sense of this little-understood condition – it provides practical advice for working with numbers, which in our modern, math-filled world was the power to make all the difference in your student’s life.” Hunter Maats, Author of the Straight-A Conspiracy and Educational Consultant, Los Angeles.
