Sam is a young boy with Dyscalculia, a lifelong condition that affects a person's ability to process numbers. It is now often compared to the way in which children with dyslexia struggle to process words.


 


Written and illustrated from Sam's perspective, this is an excellent guide for helping children aged 7+ to understand and navigate Dyscalculia. Identifying signs, symptoms and co-occurence in child-friendly terms, Sam's story provides children with the reassurance and encouragement they need to seek help at home and at school. It also provides practical and powerful techniques for overcoming their symptoms, building self confidence and achieving great success in life. For parents and teachers, it builds awareness around the profound and often crippling effect that Dyscalculia can have on various aspects of a child's day-to-day life, including their relationships with friends and family. It includes invaluable guidance on how to help at home and at school, as well as an extensive list of resources for those seeking additional support.
