Children with math learning disabilities and math difficulties often leave teachers feeling “stumped” when instructional strategies that work for most children are unproductive with children with learning disabilities. Children with math learning disabilities and math difficulties often have knowledge and skill weaknesses in math that are chronic and persistent. In order for students with math learning disabilities to be successful with learning, understanding, and applying mathematical concepts, teachers need to be aware of and use evidence-based practices in math. This webinar will introduce participants to the effective, evidence-based practices in math for students with learning disabilities. The session will also include a discussion of common challenges that children with math learning disabilities and difficulties face and how to support these children in learning math at any grade level.
Participants will be able to:
Describe common challenges that children with math learning disabilities and math difficulties have;
Understand how to identify and locate resources related to evidence-based practices in math for children with learning disabilities
Describe evidence-based practices in math to support learning across math domains.
Create learning activities that incorporate evidence-based practices in math for students with learning disabilities.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This seminar is applicable to K-12 general and special education teachers, and math coaches and interventionists.
