A pair of gloves that allows children with dyscalculia to learn, understand and memorize math, in particular, the table numbers.

FI-CO allows children with dyscalculia to learn, understand and memorize math, in particular, the table numbers. 

Wearing FI.CO gloves, children can play while they learn, making it easier to memorize arithmetic calculations and table numbers.

It is scientifically proven that counting with fingers can help the brain to memorize and this process is particularly useful, especially for the child with dyscalculia. The gloves have fixed and changeable printed numbers. The fixed numbers (from 1 to 10) are positioned on the back of the hand. On the palm instead the child will be able to see the result of the multiplication. The results are printed on the interchangeable layer. In the packaging there are two levels for each table number and the layers are replaceable on the glove.

Starting from the second grade, at the age of seven, children begin to learn the table numbers for this reason FI.CO is aimed at children aged 7 to 10 years.

Learning math, especially for children with dyscalculia, can be stressful. Fi.Co is perceived by the child as a game for this can help children to relieve stress and anxiety linked to homework.
