What's math got to do with it?



Topic:What's math got to do with it?

Description:

Do my students have a math learning disability (MLD), or do they struggle because of their dyslexia or their ADHD, or is it a mixture? How do I know? How do I best help them?

Join BCET Diana Kennedy to learn the symptoms and causes of MLDs and their relationships with dyslexia and ADHD.

Explore concept/procedure integration, explicit teaching, incremental instruction and accommodations for students with MLD. Participants will leave with guidelines and games to help all math students excel.

PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Describe the neuropsychological processes involved in mathematics
  • Differentiate between domain general and domain specific causes of MLD
  • Analyze the overlaps between MLD, dyslexia, and ADHD
  • Apply an understanding of connections to a framework for remediation and accommodation
  • Analyze teaching techniques to optimize them for students
