AB - <p>In our previous studies, we developed an approach to teaching problem-solving we termed Equilibrated Development that allows students to better understand the quantitative relationships that arise in a mathematical problem and to better choose a solution strategy. We used the method of a teaching experiment to evaluate the applicability of the developed approach to cases of students with dyslexia and to modify it, if necessary, to meet these studentsâ€™ needs. Our data suggest that: a) the understanding of the mathematical structure of a problem is independent of the student's basic numerical knowledge, and b) there are conditions that allow a dyslexic student to develop mathematical reasoning to solve written problems despite difficulties in reading and writing of numbers and text.</p>
