Counting to find how many – beyond 10
Adding up and taking away – methods to succeed
Fractions, multiplication, division and using calculators
After lunch we will tackle time and money
Time: This workshop will equip participants with a structured programme of activities and resources, developed and written by Wendy Uttley, to help them teach the passage of time and then how, step by step, to teach a child how to tell the time.
Money: We will detail a programme written by Wendy Uttley which consists of 120 finely graded activities to help teach a person with Down syndrome or other learning disability to understand and use money. From the early stages of learning the names for the
coins to working with pounds and pence this programme is suitable to use with a child from approximately 5 years of age.
