Thank you also to Sandra Rief for recommending my workbook in the ASK OUR EXPERTS column in the summer issue of ADDitude.  The question posed was:

“My fourth grader is having a great difficulty learning the multiplication tables .  We’ve tried many approaches along with offering rewards, but nothing helps.”

Sandra Rief’s response:   “If a child has ADHD or an LD, memory and other processing weaknesses — not a lack of motivation — are the reasons his brain can’t hold onto certain information.  Try [this resource]:  Teach Your Child the Multiplication Tables with Dazzling Patterns, Grids and Tricks ( helps kids identify patterns, so they can rely less on memory.”
