Abstract: It has been suggested that individuals with dyslexia show poorer performance on those aspects of arithmetic that involve the manipulation of verbal representations, such as the use of fact retrieval strategies. The present study examined this in 13 children with dyslexia who showed normal general mathematics achievement and 16 matched controls. All children completed a multiplication and a subtraction task, which were specifically designed to elicit the use of retrieval and procedural strategies, respectively.
