My daughter has dyslexia but her main problems at school revolve around maths. She has memory/processing issues and doesn't have automaticity in basic number facts (times tables etc). She has a tutor who has recommended Numbershark, but that looks very young... Is it suitable for a 12 year old? What are the alternatives? I want to find something for a bit of gentle daily maths over the holidays to keep her brain ticking over!

Numbershark is a good programme and I've used it in school up to age 16yrs but you could also look at interactive websites such as mathletics which lots of schools use. Other sites are snappy maths; maths whizz and big brainz. There are many others if you google interactive maths.

What about MyMaths?

What is her auditory processing like? If it is a strength, how about exploring Youtube, using songs and videos to revisit and learn. We have used the Carol Vorderman book on Times Tables with partial success.
