Demystifying Math Struggles
"Students with slower processing speeds or executive-function problems are often no different from their peers in math proficiency in first and second grade; but as they confront multistep computations in upper elementary school tests, their scores tumble because they lack the skills necessary to produce organized, efficient output. These students arenít losing their earlier skill base. New tasks demand efficient processing in different domains. These skills are often difficult for dyslexic students."
