Abstract

Rarely is there a single cause for a learning disability. Often there is a constellation of causes operating together that result in a child’s learning difficulties. Mathematics is a complex process requiring visual and cognitive perception abilities, comprehension ability, and adequate prior knowledge. This article addresses students’ learning difficulties in mathematics and provides some suggested activities that have been proven to work with students with learning disabilities.
