About this learning opportunity

Numeracy as well as literacy is fundamental to student success. However, many students with significant cognitive 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 learning opportunity will focus on early mathematical skills that support numeracy development for students with significant cognitive disabilities including visualizing to support the learning of math facts and making real-life math connections.

You will leave with a wealth of ideas, strategies, and learning activities to support mathematical and numeracy learning for your students.

This session addresses the TQS competency #4: Establishing Inclusive Learning Environments

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
