About the Checklist:
Arithmetic skills are one of the most fundamental and foundation skills for academic success for every child in a classroom and/or school setting. It becomes an integral part of our day-to-day activities and can be applied to a large variety of settings in a practical manner.
Children with arithmetic challenges and/or dyscalculia face computational challenges and mathematical reasoning difficulties which makes it hard for them to learn, understand and use mathematical concepts and principles in everyday life. By paying attention to and identifying the early signs of arithmetic difficulties and delays in children, the educators and caregivers will be in a better position to help and support their child or children.
Eblity’s Arithmetic Milestones Checklist is adapted from Arithmetic Skills Milestones that need to develop in a child according to his/her chronological age.
By using this checklist you will be able to determine if your child/student has met the arithmetic milestones requirements for his/her age-level.
This will help you in identifying children with learning difficulties and initiate the process of early intervention by contacting the professionals for early identification through formal assessment.
Parents, Caregivers Professionals, and Educators who are wanting to determine if age-level arithmetic milestones are met for your child/student between the age of 3 years to 13 years.
Although a child’s reading capacity is not formed until 6 years of age - there are some prerequisites skills for arithmetics which are also crucial to indicate the child’s interest and preference towards math, so this checklist tries to pay attention to those skills to help young parents and caregivers better understand their child.
A checklist is the first step towards intervention and is not a formal diagnostic tool and can never replace the accuracy of any formal assessment tool. It can just be used for reference purposes and not for diagnosis.
