About this learning opportunity
Numeracy as well as literacy is fundamental to student success. However, many students with significant disabilities lack a sound foundation in early mathematical skills and knowledge necessary to be numerate and to confidently and effectively use numeracy to meet the everyday demands of life.
This workshop will focus on early mathematical skills that support numeracy development for students with significant disabilities including visualizing to support the learning of math facts and making real-life math connections. Participants will leave with a wealth of ideas, strategies, and learning activities to support mathematical and numeracy learning for their students.
This learning opportunity is being provided through a grant from Alberta Education.
