Why is My Child Having Difficulty Counting?

Great information on why children have trouble with counting! Article by Sheldon Horowitz

Ways you can support your child who has difficulty with counting:

  • playing games to practice skill(s)
  • build up to the goal by breaking it into smaller parts
  • practice, practice, practice
  • use computers and other technology
    • One app that I have found that helps students practice counting to 20 is TallyTots
  • prompting your child frequently
    • Have the see how high they can count while they brush their teeth
    • Have them count with you
    • Give them tangible (touchable) cues; pointing at teach object as they count
