Subject: Re: Math for dyslexia

I do not have any specific curriculum to suggest for you. The fact that your son "sees" mathematics is a plus. There is a site devoted primarily to learning disabilities. Perhaps you can find what you need at this site. LD ONLINE - THE INTERACTIVE GUIDE TO LEARNING DISABILITIES FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND CHILDREN http://www.ldonline.org/ A vast array of information on topics within the area of learning disabilities from CCLD, the Coordinated Campaign for Learning Disabilities, and the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities. LD In-Depth offers articles, research findings, and useful forums, including an area specifically devoted to dyscalculia, or learning disorders in math. http://www.ldonline.org/ld_indepth/resource-guide.html http://www.ldonline.org/ld_indepth/math_skills/math-skills.html See also 10 Tips for Software Selection for Math Instruction (Babbitt), and Accessing Challenging Math Curriculum (U.S. Dept. of Education). http://www.ldonline.org/ld_indepth/technology/babbitt_math_tips.html http://www.ldonline.org/ld_indepth/technology/opening_the_door_mike.html For more sites with information about math and disabilities, visit the Forum's Internet Mathematics Library: Teaching Issues/Strategies: Special Contexts http://mathforum.org/library/ed_topics/contexts_disabled/ Social Issues/Public Policy: Equity http://mathforum.org/library/ed_topics/equity_disabled/ -Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
