Activities

DDIG aims to help dyscalculic and dyslexic students by:


  • 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.

DDIG was formed by members of the following institutions:


However DDIG has grown rapidly and we now have members from many different institutions.

In 2003, DDIG received some funding from the Higher Education Academy - Engineering Subject Centre. This enabled us to promote our work to a wider audience, to produce exemplar worksheets and materials, to run workshops and develop this web site. We acknowledge the support given by HEA engineering.

For the academic year 2004/2005, we received funding from Loughborough University. We acknowledge their support.

This web site is the legacy of the DDIG project, which, we intend, will continue to provide a large pool of resources for the community. The DDIG project is no longer funded and can no longer provide an advice service, however the DDIG JISCmail list will remain as a bulletin service. For details on joining the list, click here.
