According to an article entitled, The Impact of Dyslexia on Math" by Rosalind W. Rothman, Ed.D., Director, Language and Learning Associates & Claire Lavin, Ph.D., Professor, College of New Rochelle, "The mastery of the symbolic language of mathematics involves many verbal cognitive processes that can be affected by dyslexia. Ignoring the impact of dyslexia on the mastery of mathematics can hamper a child’s progress in school and in life."
Children with dyslexia may need tutoring and accommodations in Math as well as Reading, Writing, and Spelling.
