We consider interventions for reading disorders (dyslexia and reading comprehension impairment), language disorders and mathematics disorder. We will also briefly consider evidence relating to educational interventions for children with general learning difficulties. In addition to interventions designed for specific disorders we consider evidence for some recent approaches that have been claimed to have quite general effects on cognitive functioning in diverse groups of children.
