Have you tried NUMERULE yet? 

 

Numerule say:

The Numerule is a manipulative modern teaching aid that incorporates multi-sensory, tactile innovation to support younger primary aged children in building a foundational understanding of mathematics.

This new teaching resource incorporates the sensory elements of touch, sight and sound in a subtle, but focussed manner. The Numerule is a concrete learning aid ideal for kinaesthetic learning. The physically interactive nature of the Numerule makes it ideal for assisting many on the autism spectrum. Those with numerical learning difficulties gain a greater understanding of foundational mathematics.
