🔢🧠 Unleashing the Power of Number Sense and Subitizing: A Parent's Guide!

Did you catch our latest episode of Unlocking Dyscalculia? Join Adrianne Meldrum and Professor Brian Butterworth as they discuss working memory, number sense, and subitizing!

Subitizing is the ability to instantly recognize the number of items or dots without counting them individually. At Made for Math, we’ve observed that many students struggle with subitizing and quickly recognizing dot patterns.

Professor Butterworth uses various methods to test subitizing skills, such as having students assess the number of dots in a randomly arranged pattern or matching dots with corresponding numbers. These testing methods aim to tap into the underlying capacity of number sense. Difficulties in subitizing can be a significant indicator of dyscalculia in young individuals.
