New Book - Very Special Maths by Les Staves

Les Staves bookThere is a great deal of mathematics even before numbers and this book is about much more than its title implies. It explores important aspects at the roots of life learning for PMLD - SLD and Autistic children or adults. All of them are sensory learners and some are becoming aware of practical number. This is about learning that the conventional curriculum forgot to include.

It starts at the sensory beginnings and takes a journey through aspects of play, communication and forms of thinking. It uses many examples of interaction with all kinds of very special children.
