Ferny Hills, QLD 4055

Anne Richards is a special needs teacher with 30 years teaching experience in the classroom, including  working as a Learning Support and Special Needs teacher. She is also a SPELD literacy teacher. Five  years ago, Anne set up a tutoring business to work with  students with specific learning difficulties. These learning differences include a difficulty understanding mathematical concepts or dyscalculia.  It is through her extensive experience that children with dyscalculia and/or learning difficulties with mathematics often have difficulty recalling number facts or calculations and rely on counting on fingers. They also often have difficulty understanding place value, fractions and problem solving.

According to the Western Australian Dyslexia‐SPELD Foundation, an effective intervention program for students having learning difficulties  provides;  ‘Explicit and direct instructional methods; is Multisensory and  teaches using all the senses  to ensure learning is retained; is cumulative and builds on what has already been learnt; and is repetitive and  includes regular review of concepts’. 

When searching for  an effective mathematics  intervention program that included these pre-requisites, Anne discovered the Australian ‘Math -U See’ program. During the past two years she has been using this program with great success to support students with learning difficulties in maths. Her students have gained  confidence in their mathematical ability due to achieving success using this program. She would love to help your kids achieve the same results!

Barry Rasmussen
Bridges Multisensory Learning Centre
Melbourne, VIC

Bridges Multisensory Learning Centre provides explicit and direct multi-sensory based maths instruction to students with gaps in their understanding of maths concepts. Our programs are based on multi-sensory methodology which has proven to be effective with students with learning differences. Instruction is based on Building (showing with blocks), Writing (writing down the problem and the answer) and Saying it (explaining the problem and how the student got the answer). At Bridges Multisensory Learning Centre, we believe the student’s individual learning needs guided instruction and therefore, sessions are typically one-on-one and highly interactive. Learning happens at the student’s own pace and assessment occurs continuously to keep track of where each student is at. Located in Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
