Maths difficulties and their solution, continued
Correction by modelling and mastering core concepts with clay
Once the person has control of his disorientations, the client then models in clay the concepts needed to understand maths, such as self, change, cause and effect, consequence, order and disorder, sequence and time.
To make sure that there is full understanding of the concept not only in general terms but also as it relates to him, he includes himself in the model.
Checking that his distortions are switched off, he then "masters" the concept in the same way that a dyslexic client masters a trigger word. [See More Information, Page 5 ] Once again, it's important that it's all his own work, so that he can own it: "It's mine because I made it!"
Eliminating maths confusion
Once these concepts are in place, the client is taken through the stages of arithmetic, always being shown in a picture-thinking way what is actually happening at every stage. In this way, any confusion is eliminated, and the client gains the confidence of certainty. He knows this is right because he understands it. He can see it!
Certainty as a foundation for the future
Once he has discovered arithmetic in this way, he has the foundation for the rest of maths.
Note: The maths programme lasts for 8 to 10 days rather than 6, and is costed accordingly. Sometimes it is necessary to do a reading programme first; in which case the number of days needed for maths is reduced.
