    Marilyn Zecher presents the follow-up course to Multisensory Math 1. Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics II applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM). Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills such as multiplication, division and fractions to operations in upper levels of math including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ELL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.

    Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

    Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Marilyn Zecher's Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.

    Program Dates:
    April 7 - June 23, 2018.
    With two 90 minute online sessions with Marilyn Zecher.

    ASDEC faculty present Sounds In Syllables (SIS), one of the most powerful Orton-Gillingham based methods designed to teach reading (decoding, fluency, and comprehension). These methods integrate research-based evidence from neurology, cognitive sciences, psychology, speech-language pathology, and linguistics to produce the most durable remediation for students with even the most severe learning disabilities.
