Classroom Studies in Mathematics: Comenius Project
Keywords:Mathematics, Dyslexia, Special Schools, SLD, Specific Learning Disabilities
Three classroom-based studies were undertaken in three European countries - the Netherlands, Ireland and England - to determine the similarities and differences in mathematics learning for pupils with dyslexia. These pupils were aged 11-13 years and all attended special schools for children with specific learning disabilities/dyslexia.
