This is Heather's opinion as a math lover, dealing with my son's teachers from pre-k to 6th grade.

I can't add to what you've stated because I agree with you 100%. Conceptual understanding is not pushed in the classroom, and quite frankly, your average elementary teacher doesn't know or have the confidence enough to teach conceptually. I imagine some school districts will not allow their teachers to speak off the script either, or they feel rushed due to high stakes testing. Whatever the case, indivduals with dyscalculia have a very real problem with subitizing and numbers sense, and require systematic, explicit, and direct instruction. That type of teaching isn't suited for your typical classroom instruction.

The link provided demonstrates ways to use Cuisenaire rods and develop subitizing and numbers sense. The creator's children are NT. Many parents of children with dyscalculia use c-rods to teach their children at home. The author Ronit Bird recommends concrete manipulatives to explain math conceptually, providing a kinesthetic and visual element.

Many individuals respond well to this type of teaching. I would not describe the teaching as easy. In some instances, I would expect the concepts to take several days to grasp, depending upon age and the nature of the disability. Naturally, YMMV. The link is free.
