Developmental Teaching of Mathematics for the Learning Disabled.
Cawley, John F., Ed.
This 11-chapter textbook presents various facets of mathematics and mathematics applications from preschool throughout the adult years. Chapter 1 describes selected qualities of the concept of learning disability. Chapter 2 discusses the K-12 mathematics curriculum, instructional practices in regular education, mathematics curricula in special education, and specialized instructional approaches. Chapter 3 discusses various methods of assessment, including a model for assessing severe mathematics disabilities. Chapter 4 develops the premise that the needs of learning-disabled children are interrelated and that activities from one topic or skill area can be used to reinforce desirable behaviors or to promote opportunities for application and generalization. Chapters 5 through 7 contain extensive presentations of curriculum topics and instructional options. Chapter 8 explores mathematics in day-to-day living. Chapter 9 discusses the identification, selection, modification, and development of curriculum and instructional materials. Chapter 10 contains a comprehensive review of approaches to classroom management at varying developmental levels. Chapter 11 is designed to provide an understanding of the administrative options and models that are used to deliver services to the learning disabled. The chapter differentiates elementary and secondary levels and provides suggestions on how to integrate mathematics with other topics. (JN)
