At Emerson House our approach to children with numeracy-learning difficulties is to  teach maths in a very structured way, teaching all aspects of maths (with a primary focus on number-work) using  reason-based methodologies. The children use concrete materials which are organised into simple cognitive tools and are actively involved in learning (otherwise known as a ‘problem solving approach’ or a ‘guided discovery approach’). Children learn the most effective universal reasoning methods.

At all times we aim to protect the long-term and working memory resources of children by teaching essential key facts. One of our key principles at Emerson House is that children have a good grasp of the foundation aspects of each area of number work before we progress onto more advanced levels of number work.
