Math Problems Memory instability for spelling, grammar, math, names, dates, and lists, or sequences such as the alphabet, the days of the week and months of the year, and directions.
Meares-Irlen Syndrome Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, also known as Meares-Irlen Syndrome or Irlen Syndrome, is a broadly defined visual perceptual disorder affecting primarily reading and writing based activities.
Because of this, it is sometimes categorised as a form of dyslexia. The syndrome is one in which reading is impeded by distortions of print.
Sufferers are given acetate overlays of different colours to establish one preferable overlay colour for them. The overlays help stabilise the distorted text.
Memory Problems Memory instability for spelling, grammar, math, names, dates, and lists, or sequences such as the alphabet, the days of the week and months of the year, and directions.
Memory Skills Many dyslexic children find it difficult to develop problem solving and analytical skills due to problems with memory or processing auditory or visual information.
Microphone Desktop microphones can be used with Speech Recognition software.
Mind Mapping Graphical organisation mapping can help with dyslexia.
Pictures and diagrams help those who prefer a visual working environment.
Ideas do not have to be formed into sentences immediately.
Easy to re-arrange ideas into a coherent structure.
Maps can be developed using your individual thinking or learning style.
Visual representation helps to highlight where information is plentiful and where it is lacking.
Of course all these factors can benefit non-dyslexic learners as much.
