Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)
Specific learning difficulties - where to start
Children may have difficulties in just one of these areas – a purely dyscalculic child will stumble only with numbers and may excel in non-mathematical subjects – but it is not uncommon for a dyslexic pupil to have difficulties in some areas of maths, most likely in number, or to have some co-ordination difficulties. Difficulties with numeracy are often accompanied by the language difficulties of dyslexia.
