Learning Works is an educational consultancy based in Marlborough, Wiltshire. We focus on learning and learners... from those with special educational needs and barriers to learning to those who are able, gifted and talented. This site is dedicated to our ongoing work concerning dyscalculia and maths learning difficulties, which has grown since the publication of our bestselling book ‘Working with Dyscalculia’ in 2003. 

Every year we bring together an exciting range of presenters drawn from the worlds of research, maths teaching and special educational needs and/or disability (SEND) expertise. Each programme is unique and seeks to give a broad overview of the current state of knowledge of theory and practice in thisIMG_0009.jpg vital but under‐researched field.

At present there is an on-going international debate about the precise nature of dyscalculia. So, in the absence of a universally accepted definition, the conference considers dyscalculia to be a specific learning difficulty giving rise to cognition and learning needs.

The core aim of the annual conference is to:

  • Raise our awareness about current research into Dyscalculia
  • Discuss issues that affect pupils’ learning and performance in Maths
  • Share practical ideas to overcome barriers to learning in mathematics
  • Offer opportunities for professional conversations and networking
