Problems faced by students with learning difficulties vary considerably for each student per subject and per educational level, having a common distinctive feature: they relate to areas in the handling of mathematical calculations and in the production of written speech. This brief report emphasises pedagogical skills, techniques and behaviour management as a cross-learning process in mathematics and reading in classroom. The paper can provide highlights in (e-)teaching through the example of mathematics and reading.
