Synopsis

This course is concerned with addressing numeracy difficulties. This course will present theoretical aspects of numeracy development and the practical application of such theory through evidence-based pedagogical practice to address numeracy difficulties within the whole class and individually. Characteristics of learners with learning difficulties such as issues with memory will be addressed, as well as the impact of such characteristics on learning numeracy skills. Appropriate assessment will be discussed, as well as how to set learning goals from the assessment results. Also included is planning using differentiation so that learners with numeracy difficulties can meet learning goals. In addressing learning difficulties educators in special education can work in a number of contexts where collaboration occurs such as co-teaching in classroom-wide implementation and consulting with classroom teachers. Effective collaboration in these contexts will be discussed.
