Emmen school uses Dybuster software with all ages

A few posts back we introduced Fehraltdorf school and how the special education teachers there use Dybuster software to help students with dyslexia and dyscalculia. Continuing our school portrait series we would like to showcase the pulic school in Emmen, Switzerland, where teachers use the software with students across many age levels.

We are excited to announce our new blog and resource for dyscalculics: Dyscalculia Blog!

After a year of writing articles on dyscalculia for our company blog, we realized this content would be better served on a platform of its own. This way readers searching for information on dyscalculics can find what they need quickly without having to hunt through the dyslexia and edtech articles on this blog.

We’ve moved some of our top articles to the new blog already and are excited about researching and writing new posts on dyscalculia. What topics would you most like to see covered? What aspects of dealing with dyscalculia do you most need information? Head over to the new blog and let us know what you think either there or in the comments here.

New large-scale study confirms effectiveness of Calcularis

Calcularis, our software for dyscalculia, has been evaluated in smaller studies which clearly showed that the software was beneficial for increasing children’s proficiency in math.

The study looked at the software’s effects on students in general, rather than focusing on children with learning differences such as dyscalculia.
