Understanding Dyscalculia: Is It Math Anxiety or a Learning Disability? - Free Webinar Replay
Dyscalculia is a life-long condition that makes math-related tasks arduous and even painful. Though it’s nearly as common as dyslexia (roughly 7% of U.S. students have dyscalculia), this learning disability is neither well known nor fully understood. Students with dyscalculia may struggle with various math concepts and tasks. They may not understand quantities or concepts like biggest vs. smallest. They may not understand that the numeral 5 is the same as the word five. So what are the most common signs of dyscalculia? How can you help a child who is struggling with it? Here, learn about supports and strategies to help students with dyscalculia.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
*How number skills develop in early childhood
*The key building blocks of early numeracy
*New ways of assessing numerical skills in early education
*Signs and symptoms of mathematical learning difficulties
*The overlap between different learning difficulties
*The role of gender in the development of numerical and mathematical skills
*The role of math anxiety in numeracy development

Free Sample Schedule for Children with ADHD – Free download
Children with ADHD need schedules. Reliable routines for morning, homework, dinner, and bedtime make an amazing difference in setting expectations, building good habits, and improving behavior.
On paper, it seems basic, but when you’re raising kids with learning difficulties, hyperactivity, or difficulty focusing things get a bit more complicated.
Many parents start out implementing a routine, then give up after a few days because kids resist, or it just seems too difficult.
Use this template as your guide to wrangle your family’s time into a pattern that works for you. Make changes to fit your daily life, and then adopt it as not just a temporary behavior plan, but as a way of living.
Raising a child with ADHD requires creativity and consistency. Use this sample routine to establish a reliable schedule — plus get more expert information about parenting a child with ADHD via email.

Learn about the most common conditions related to ADHD — plus get more expert information via email.
An overwhelming majority of individuals with ADHD — up to 90 percent of children and approximately 85 percent of adults — are diagnosed with at least one other psychiatric and/or developmental disorder sometime during their lifetime. About half of all children with ADHD have at least two additional, co-existing conditions, called ‘cormorbidities.’
A comorbid condition is a separate condition that exists alongside ADHD, compounding an individual’s cognitive, psychological, and social impairment. These conditions, when found alongside ADHD, warrant special consideration and a unique treatment plan.
This reference chart names the 9 conditions most commonly found in individuals with ADHD, plus the symptoms, common treatments, and recommended resources for each.
