Do you think of yourself as a ‘math person’? Do you have a child who is struggling with math? Christopher Woodin discusses how to make math accessible to your dyslexic child. He explains why developing number sense, part- to- whole understanding and multimodal learning are essential for transferring math skills to real life. He compares traditional teaching methods to alternative methods and why having the courage to think outside the box works!

Joan Sedita reminds us  that vocabulary is one of the five core components of reading instruction, the others being phonemic awareness, phonics and word study, fluency, and comprehension. Vocabulary is the glue that holds communication and comprehension together, making them accessible for children. Educational research has established a strong relationship between vocabulary knowledge and reading comprehension, yet Sedita suggests that vocabulary should be taught both directly and indirectly, using multiple strategies simultaneously and/or consecutively. This meta-analysis of strategies reveals that one teacher cannot teach students all the words they need to learn.  In summary, Sedita highlights the benefits of exposing students to new words, having them read a lot, and incorporating new vocabulary into instruction and everyday usage whenever and wherever possible
