Learn why students struggle when they don’t have math fact fluency and automaticity, and how to help them calculate with ease.

Problem #2: Visual Processing

Problem #3: Executive Functioning

Learn how difficulties with self-regulation and mental organization block students from math learning and problem solving, and how to help them reach their full learning potential.
