Math Disabilities and Assessments

In this training, participants will discuss the term dyscalculia, understand that a math disability can be broken down into various components, learn various formal math assessments that are currently being used in districts, and practice how to break down the assessment results and create specific SMART math goals from the data.

Do you find yourself creating the same one or two math goals on your Individual Education Plans (IEPs)? If you do, you are not alone. Math word problems and skip counting are the two most common math goals found on IEPs. This training will go over how to determine what aspect(s) of mathematics your student is struggling in so that we can create math goals that are more specific and relevant to their needs. We will also look at formal math assessments that are currently being used and how to take the standard scores from the assessments and turn them into IEP goals.
