A question was posted to the list a while back that never received much discussion, the question asked if anyone had any experiences working with adults with documented or suspected disabilities and if so, how did you deal with their disability and teaching them numeracy/math skills.

There is an interesting article on that can be found on the LINCS Resource Basic Skills Mathematics & Numeracy Collection by Rochelle Kenyon, here is a direct link: http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/resourcecollections/abstracts/basicskills/RC_skills_abs21.html

But what experiences has anyone had directly working with this population that seems to be growing each year? And what "best practices" do you suggest?
