Creative Ideas to teach graphing linear equations

I need some help in teaching my students how to graph linear equations.  My students all have dyscalcula and it is very difficult for them to catch on to working through the equations.  Any suggestions?

Hello!
Maybe you can try by applying synthetic geometry, being known the fact that people with dyscalculia disability could manage easily science and geometry issues.This kind of geometry( unlike the analytical one, which constructs geometric objects with the artifice of coordinate system) has to do more with euclidian geometry, which implies
logic rather than formulae.

I think that you can teach them graphing linear equations through various softwares tht are available in the market I mean that once they are familiar with what the answer would be then you can proceed to how its done softwares like Matlab would just do fine.
