The Dyslexic Student and Mathematics in Higher Education
Perkin, Glynis; Croft, Tony
Dyslexia, v13 n3 p193-210 Aug 2007
Difficulties that are encountered by dyslexic undergraduates with their learning and understanding of mathematics are explored. Specific consideration is given to issues arising through mathematical content, its delivery, the procedures and processes of doing mathematics, and its assessment. Particular difficulties, which have emerged through exploratory and explanatory multiple-case studies, and witnessed through the provision of one-to-one support to a dyslexic and dyspraxic engineering undergraduate, are detailed. Recommendations for the provision of mathematical support to dyslexic students and proposals for future research are given. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
