Calum Heraty, Ciarán Mac an Bhaird, Peter Mulligan, James O'Malley, Rachel O'Neill


In this paper we report on a pilot of resources to support students with dyslexia conducted at a university in Ireland. We give brief background to the development of these resources and describe the steps taken to pilot them in a mathematics support centre. We outline the feedback received from tutors and students, and close with observations on how the pilot outcomes may influence the future implementation of these and other similar resources.
