Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and the Impact on Literacy and Numeracy
For some pupils, acquiring literacy and numeracy skills can be challenging. Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyscalculia can mean pupils struggle with reading or understanding numerical tasks. This can have a serious and negative impact on children at school, as they can feel inferior to their peers which can impact self-esteem.
The effects of such learning difficulties can largely be overcome by skilled specialist teaching and by the use of compensatory strategies. A person with dyslexia or dyscalculia has their own pattern of strengths and weaknesses. Many enjoy lateral thinking abilities and shine in such fields as the arts, creativity and computing. The educational environment at Slindon College enables pupils to regain their inner confidence and self-esteem in order to realise their talents and to achieve success.
