Dyslexia Dyspraxia and Mathematics is written by Dorian Yeo, a teacher with many years experience of teaching mathematics to primary school dyslexic and dyspraxia children with a wide range of abilities.
The book is designed to be a practical teaching guide. It offers detailed guidance and specific teaching suggestions to all specialist teachers, support teachers, classroom teachers or parents who either directly teach mathematics to dyslexic and dyspraxia children or who support the mathematics teaching programmes for dyslexic and dyspraxia children.
Although the book has grown out of experience, it is also informed by widely acknowledged international research which explores the cognitive aspects of leaning mathematics and tries to understand why it is that some children fail to learn mathematics. Many of the teaching principles describe in this book have specific and quite far reaching teaching implications. The theoretical arguments will, therefore, also be of interest to special needs co-ordinators, heads of mathematics departments, head teachers and other professionals who are responsible for designing or modifying the mathematics learning programmes of children with specific learning difficulties.
