Learning math can be challenging, especially for students who have learning differences. Chris Woodin has developed innovative, research-based methods for teaching about numbers and learning basic math skills. Topics may include:

  • The role of language and visual processing skills, executive functioning, and motor planning in acquiring math competency
  • Instructional methods using minimum language demands and whole-to-part, multimodal strategies to help students efficiently store, retrieve, and express information
  • Strategies for students who have difficulty learning, sequencing, and executing multi-step procedures
  • Adapting materials to provide structure and scaffolding and to promote independence
  • Strategies to help students activate their prior knowledge, process text-based problems, and develop self-checking skills
