This approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics is modeled after the Orton-Gillingham approach for language instruction. Participants learn and practice how to teach mathematics to students in an explicit, direct, and multi-sensory manner. The impact of dyslexia on the learning of mathematics is discussed. Directed drill work and the introduction of concepts and calculations are presented in a sequenced, cumulative manner. Lesson planning, approaches to teaching math facts, and strategies for solving story problems are presented. Upon completion, participants are able to teach about the history of math, as well as basic math involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and basic story problems. A detailed manual, math manipulatives, and math fact drill cards are included. 

Fee includes all materials.
