"This fantastic and accessible book will become essential reading for anyone with dyscalculia, their families and their teachers. Struggling with numbers is challenging in school and in life so it is important that we learn to see dyscalculia as more than just being "bad at maths". I thoroughly recommend this great addition to this series."
- Pete Jarrett, Chair, BDA Dyscalculia Committee

"What a useful book for children who are dyscalculic and their parents and teachers! Judy Hornigold has that rare skill of seeing learning problems through a child's eyes and combining this with outstanding professional expertise and communication skills."
- Steve Chinn, Visiting Professor, University of Derby. Author, Maths Explained

"I would recommend this book as a very clear initial introduction for those who have not considered the topic of Dyscalculia in any depth before. This book can be added as a resource to understand another part of the group of difficulties sometimes known as specific learning difficulties, alongside better known conditions such as dyslexia and perhaps dyspraxia."
