Dyslexia

Developmental dyslexia is a difficulty with the process of learning, notably with phonology and short-term memory. Early on in schooling, it is the acquisition of skills involving formal sequences of symbols – reading, spelling, numbers, which are most obviously affected.

Dyscalculia

Dyspraxia/Developmental Co-ordination Disorder

A disorder in which there is impaired development of movement skills, understanding of language and thought processes. Motor skills such as catching,  throwing and construction may be difficult and the child may be regarded as ‘clumsy’. He or she may find it difficult to understand sensory information and relate it to actions and to plan and organise their thoughts.
