Example text

In the classroom the pupil may lose his place on the page (or board) from which he is copying. He may use the wrong question number. He may not be able to relate two-dimensional drawings to the three-dimensional shape they represent. Spatial awareness also affects organisation of work on paper so that what seems straightforward may in fact be a very demanding task. For example, the sum needs to have the place values lined up correctly, the 'carry' numbers in the right place (and remembered) and the relevant numbers have to be added together.

Spatial awareness also affects organisation of work on paper so that what seems straightforward may in fact be a very demanding task.

Questions such as 2(x + 2x)2 can be a real challenge!

Summary The understanding of dyslexia has been expanded from a consideration of just language difficulties to an inclusion of numeracy/arithmetic difficulties. There is now a greater awareness that difficulties in at least some areas of mathematics frequently occur concurrently with language difficulties. We have focused on areas which may create difficulties in learning mathematics. Chinn (1995b, 1996) has tried to investigate the influence of individual factors and is now convinced that any prediction, either of success or failure, is not a simple matter.
