Episode 23: Why You Don’t Need a Special Needs Math Curriculum
Does your child hate math? Is it the subject they struggle with most? Are you searching for the Special Needs Math Curriculum that will solve all of your woes?
If you want to see real progress with math, the key is not a curriculum targeting a specific learning disability.. the key is helping your child see the beauty in math and to find a curriculum that teaches the way your child learns best.
A curriculum designed for a specific disability isn’t going to work because we aren’t a diagnosis. We are people, which means we are all unique individuals!
Join me, a reformed math-hater, as I share some ideas about how you can adjust your approach to teaching mathematics to help your child start seeing the beauty in math and start loving it!
