Follow this link for the updated practice paper on Persistent Difficulties with Numeracy and Maths:
In Highland we have found it hugely beneficial to work collaboratively with Highland Pyschological Services on addressing the needs of all children with numeracy and maths. You will see that this paper offers clear guidance on tackling persistent difficulties within these areas, incorporating the diagnostic assessments and resources already embedded within the Highland Numeracy Strategy.
The paper outlines The Highland Council Psychological Service approach to meeting the needs of children and young people learning numeracy, including those with persistent difficulties with numeracy, and aims to provide guidance regarding identification and intervention for pupils experiencing persistent difficulties with numeracy.
This numeracy report template can be used for reporting persistent difficulties and providing important background and contextual information for a child.
