Strategies and Interventions to Support Students with Mathematics Disabilities
This InfoSheet provides an overview of strategies and resources to support students with, or at-risk for, mathematics learning disabilities. The resource explores instructional strategies for teachers and learning strategies for students for mathematical problem-solving, vocabulary development, algebraic concepts, and metacognitive skills. Detailed examples are provided. The resource also includes a list of suggested websites with a summary of the resources found there and how they can be used to teach a variety of mathematical concepts across levels.
This InfoSheet includes many features which would be helpful in linking research to practice. It provides an overview of strategies and resources to support students with, or at-risk for mathematics learning disabilities. This strategy training helps students with math learning disabilities understand concepts and procedures.
This resource provides many instructional strategies and other teaching resources that could be used in working directly with adult students to help them find their strengths and challenges. It could also be used to develop a learner’s individual education plan (IEP) or instructional plan.
In addition to the instructional strategies, the resource also describes the learning strategy that learners will utilize in order to use their strengths to overcome learning challenges. This resource includes different examples of learning strategies (e.g. acronyms) that can be taught to learners so that they can be successful in math.
This resource might be particularly helpful for new adult educators as a pre-reading assignment. It also lends itself as a topic for a Study Circle.
