Full course description
Mathematics instruction is an area where there often is great uncertainty on how to best teach students with autism and intellectual disabilities. This course will prepare teachers with strategies on how to build foundational early numeracy skills and mathematical problem-solving skills in a progressive manner while accessing grade-aligned content. Each strategy will be given a brief overview, a demonstration, followed by hands-on practice time.
Participants will be able to:
- identify the benefits of teaching mathematics to students with low incidence disabilities
- demonstrate applications of evidence-based practices for teaching mathematics and leave with an EBP Toolkit
- demonstrate an understanding of how to teach problem-solving to students with low incidence disabilities
- apply early numeracy and problem-solving skills to access grade-aligned standards in mathematics
- participants should have 20 counters, a marker, a sheet of paper, and a few 3"x5" index cards so they can practice activities along with the presenter.
