  • Exchanging information between ourselves as H.E. practitioners regarding the links between dyscalculia, dyslexia, maths anxiety and the study of Mathematics in Higher Education.
  • Offering a forum a) for discussion of issues arising from the above, b) linking research and practice.
  • Raising awareness of these issues generally and to find out what has been done in this field, particularly in higher education.
  • Compiling a list of resources and pooling together practical ideas, such as a checklist for lecturers, and information on how to reproduce material accessible to dyslexics.
