Methods, materials, and strategies help to mitigate and accommodate deficit areas: visuospatial, directional, sequential, memory, focus, procedural, retrieval, working memory, and kinesthetic
All teaching materials were developed by a professional with dyscalculia and have been used successfully with students with a wide range of abilities (IQ 50 to IQ 130).
An optional online learning portal provides a record of accomplishments and student-specific resources.
Instruction is tailored to student interests, talents, hobbies, academic plans, and career goals.
Instruction aims to cure the student's most significant problems while establishing a strong foundation for independent living and learning.
Therapy is informed by a student's diagnostic reports and historical information.
Scope and Sequence of Math Language Therapy
Student learning dictates pacing and progression.
In a few sessions, the student will be able to count to 100-quadrillion and will be able to interpret and encode very large and very small numbers (deci-, centi-, milli-, micro-, nano-, pico-, femto-). Example: The student will be able to understand the meaning of and will be able to write the number in this headline: "The asteroid contains diamonds worth 26.784 quadrillion dollars."
Math Language Fluency is the ability to understand and decode and encode numbers in the news, school, in science, and everyday life (mills in property taxes, "a .7 mill tax hike", discounts, interest, taxes, penalties, debit, credit, rate, percentage, point 5, 1.2 million, fractions...). Language fluency is very powerful and is the foundation for independent learning.
Our sessions do not cover algebra, per se, but cover foundational concepts that form a framework for higher learning.
