How Can I Help My Students with Learning Disabilities in Mathematics?
Jiménez-Fernández, Gracia
REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, v5 n1 p56-73 Feb 2016
Learning Disabilities in Mathematics (LDM) or dyscalculia are a frequent and disruptive problem within schools. Nevertheless, this problem has received little attention from researchers and practitioners, if compared with the number of studies published on disabilities in reading. Therefore, teachers do not have enough guidance to help children overcome their difficulties. Consequently, educators, practitioners and teachers are in need of some guidelines which help them choose teaching methods that are adapted for children with LDM. This paper proposes an interventional framework for improving skills in children who show problems in learning basic mathematics. Concretely, it suggests some guidelines which are focused on number sense and problem solving, two of the most important mathematical areas.
