Will it conflict with school curriculum?
Yes and no. There are distinct differences in the two methods. However, if a child is able to start the program prior to or concurrent with being taught traditional methods, there is minimal conflict and the child will easily work within both systems. If a child starts the program later, having already received traditional foundations, there may be a slightly extended learning period (approximately 3 months) for the child to accept and integrate the image abacus method.
