What’s Math Got to Do With It? Math Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, and ADHD: Understanding the Connections and Remediating Effectively

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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; and analyze teaching techniques to optimize them for students.
