ONLINE MATHS COMPUTER GAMES
Maths Online Games
Many dyslexic children have problems in maths. They could find difficulty with topics such as multiplication, telling the time, fractions, place value, and decimals .
A dyslexic child will usually need to work extra at home in order to grasp certain concepts.
Games work particularly well with dyslexic children as they provide a welcome change from maths worksheets, which they do mainly at school. Games can help children to practice their maths skills and reinforce topics learnt . There are a lot of good educational sites on the web which have maths games.Unfortunately most of the sites are in English.However if you understand just a little English you can generally help your child to play these games.
Below I have listed some good sites to start to look at :
