Dyslexia and Maths at second level - 21LCAU52 (Live Webinar)

Students may have difficulties in Maths resulting from Dyslexia or Dyscalculia.  These can include poor working memory, confusion about left and right leading to difficulties in coordinate geometry, the number line and positive/negative numbers, distinguishing symbols, understanding written instructions, processing difficulties, working within time limits, confusion about the meaning of words etc.

The webinar is designed for teachers of students with dyslexia who are experiencing difficulties with the subject. Because of this the course deals with a small selection of mathematical topics that prove difficult for students. Thus it is not intended to provide overall information on the entire mathematics syllabus itself.

Topics covered include:

  • The difficulties that students can have with Mathematics.
  • What is meant by Dyscalculia?
  • How to support students with memory and processing difficulties.
  • Learning styles in mathematics.
  • Tips for effectively helping students to learn mathematics.
  • Classroom activities to help with mathematics. 

Presenter - Deirdre McElroy has worked for a number of years as an educational psychologist with NEPS.  Before that she taught Mathematics and History to Leaving Certificate Higher level.  She also has a Masters in Special Education and has worked as a resource teacher.

Book online at www.carrickedcentre.ie and a webinar link will be emailed to you on the morning of the webinar. Please check your SPAM folder if you do not receive the link in your inbox.

Please note that all courses will require viable numbers to proceed. If you have any queries regarding your online booking, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
