How Dyslexia impacts maths and where Dyscalculia fits in
Festival of Inclusive Education: On Demand
Session details & slides
According to the British Dyslexia Association, as many as 60% of learners with dyslexia also experience challenges with maths learning. In this session, Dyslexia and Dyscalculia expert Kate will look at the ways in which Dyslexia can affect maths learning. She’ll clear up some of the misconceptions about Dyslexia and discuss ways you can provide support in the maths classroom. Finally she will explore Dyscalculia and some of the challenges it can present to students.
