ab: Summary: The purpose of this chapter is to describe several advances and
trends in teaching mathematics to students with learning disabilities.
Mathematics disabilities affect between 5\% and 8\% of students in the
general population. These students generally experience serious
difficulties in developing requisite concepts, skills, and strategies
for success in mathematics and, consequently, are at risk for school
failure and poor post-secondary outcomes. Research in special education
has identified a number of evidence-based practices that have proven
effective for teaching students with learning, attention, and/or
behavioral disorders that interfere with success in mathematics.
Following a discussion of student characteristics and evidence-based
practices, two examples of research programs focusing on mathematical
problem-solving interventions for students with learning disabilities
are highlighted.
