Evidence based specialist resource to support
pupils struggling with maths


Dynamo Maths identifies and supports pupils at-risk of developmental dyscalculia and pupils who are performing significantly below their peers in maths.

Dynamo Maths has two components:

- Dynamo Assessment - Standardised dyscalculia assessment baselined at ages 6 to 9. It provides a profile of strength and weakness, supported by an Individual Support Plan, signposted to Dynamo Intervention

- Dynamo Intervention - for ages 6 to 8, incorporates a purposeful triple pathway remediation

Dynamo Maths Assessment:

The assessment has been standardised on sample of 3450 pupils (2015-16 UK), ranging from 6 to 13.11 years. A composite score, Standard scores, percentile scores with normal curve equivalents are provided.


The design is underpinned by a researched and evidence based NumberSenseMMR model. It takes a neurodevelopmental approach as maths requires the interaction and execution of sensory and neuronal pathways.


The scores in the assessment are reported within three areas: Meaning, Magnitude and Relationship. The Meaning and Magnitude sores indicate symptoms of Developmental Dyscalculia and the Relationship score indicates Maths Developmental Delays.


The assessment provides a Number Sense Developmental Profile up to 15 strands with individualised scores and response time.


A comprehensive Individual Support Plan with a Scheme of Work is signposted to Dynamo Maths Intervention.


The easy to use on-line assessment is baselined for ages 6, 7, 8 and 9. Pupils above age 9 can take the assessment, however baseline age 9 will be used to determine symptoms of dyscalculia.


The assessment includes Support Tools to capture the pupil's developmental and functional capacity, observation and monitoring tools.

button Can be used to screen pupils for symptoms of dyscalculia and used as an early preventative tool.  
Dynamo Intervention:

Delivers a personalised pathway of developmental activities in small cumulative steps identified from the assessment.


It offers a purposeful and intentional intervention using multiple experiences to support the small step developmental pathways identified from the assessment.


Gives pupil multiple experiences to support their learning and cognition and this offers the interventionist multiple observation points to identify barriers to understanding the skill.


Provides teachers easy to use support tools to measure and record the delivery of the Lesson Plans and the dynamic Worksheets.


The On-line activities uses visual model and images supported by audio and visual stimuli and to process what they see and hear.


The Lesson Plans uses resources with questions to engage the pupil so that they begin to develop an interest and enter into communication with the interventionist. They provide a social focus to strengthen the skills of thinking, reasoning, communication, language, self-evaluation and reflection. This allows the interventionist to observe and capture the barriers to cognition and learning.


The Dynamic Worksheets enable the pupil to work on paper, think through and reflect on their learning.

button Rewards and motivation are offered through feedback from the interventionist and on the on-line activities instant feedback is offered after each question.  
button Progress is monitored through the Visual Report and Score Report and mastery through the Intervention Report.  
button Successfully used by SENCos, inclusion managers, dyscalculia specialist, practitioners and highly appreciated by educational psychologists.
