Dr Sheila Furey, MD (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist; Learning Disability Specialist: trainyourbrainrva.org) highly recommends inTABS Multiplication book for all students including those with special needs:
"inTABS is an awesome addition to the toolbox of any student who struggles with math facts. This tool provides kinaesthetic and visual input to students as they learn their math facts. Counting aloud adds auditory input. Visually seeing the patterns of numbers is invaluable.
The layout of the book allows both horizontal and vertical brain input. It allows students to incorporate counting forward and backward. Students begin by learning to skip count forward and can add the additional neurocognitive challenge of backward to build and strengthen their neuronal network. The student can work independently or with support. Students enjoy the independence of opening a tab to reveal success or an added support. The book is sturdy and versatile. Take it in the car for quick minute drills or while waiting at appointments. This is a tool I recommend for all of my patients who are struggling with math no matter what their age.
Nothing in life or math is random. From physics to art and music, all of science and creativity is tied to math. The beauty of math is often lost because a person does not have a secure foundation. Allow inTABS to be the first step in building that foundation. Math no longer has to be a foreboding subject, but can be the foundation of understanding the complex symmetry of life."

inTabs is working with our school and I have seen nothing but total passion and commitment from this company in helping and supporting children with numeracy. Their book is amazing, innovative and engaging. For example, one of our more challenging pupils who has ADHD loved their book: “It helps your brain and I like lifting the tabs to find the answer. It’s like a game and fun. It is interesting and I like the colours“. What I found even more fascinating and an unexpected bonus to someone who is tasked with helping and supporting him, he said “We can use this book when I get angry as it helps to calm me down“! All this from a maths book and not some video game or app!
Amazing book and look forward to their next in range for numeracy books.
OMG! Is this some sort of magic?!
Revolutionary! … Genius! … Fun! … Set to win the war on innumeracy.
New system that will, hopefully, change the world.
Some of the best innovation comes out of Oxfordshire.
I didn’t think I’d be able to learn the times tables, especially so bloody fast. I’m 23, when I left school I gave up all hope.
The power of the book is bloody amazing.
This is truly amazing! My 6 year old loves it! He’s now able to answer many times table questions instantly.. and we’ve only had the book for 6 days!! Totally amazing!!
I am a 57 year old Dyslectic and I have never been able to do my multiplications. I am already working on my sevens because this book teaches a fun way and a way that sticks in my memory.
I highly recommend this to everyone having a hard time in math.
I absolutely love this book!
I’ve been helping kids with maths for 15 years now, including a routine that demystifies the Times Tables. I tried it out using In-Tabs on a 10 and 8 year old, and they really liked it. If you encourage them to leave open the windows they get right and close the windows they still need to work on it becomes a game: how many windows can you leave open? They can also chart their progress as the islands of closed windows get smaller. An excellent game for parents to join in for quality time.
A great product with a lot going for it: simple to use, the foundation math skill, interactive and good for dyslexics and those with special learning needs.
It makes secondary school topics like algebra so much easier if kids have instant recall of the times tables.
If I had any say in education, I would equip every Primary age student with an InTABS book – it’s a bit like a maths text that will serve kids right through their Primary education and will develop foundation skills with numbers that will support their Secondary education.
