Teaching Mathematics to Students with Disabilities

About this Course

Closing the achievement gap between students with disabilities in mathematics and their non-disabled peers has caused frustration and disappointment among many school administrators, teachers, and the children they serve. In many cases, as standards are raised in an effort to increase achievement, the gap only widens. Are there lessons can we learn from research and practice in successful math instruction and in the nature of common disabilities to equip us as we work to close this gap and provide all students with the skills and understandings necessary to be college and career ready? This course will address those lessons. It will focus on what we know about quality math instruction and then offer accommodations to those strategies appropriate for several common areas of disability as they appear during math instruction.
