Evidence-Based Specially Designed Instruction in Mathematics Resource Guide (2020) & Students with Disabilities in Mathematics: Frequently Asked Questions (2020) (Virginia Department of Education, VDOE)
Evidence-Based Specially Designed Instruction in Mathematics Resource Guide (PDF) provides an overview of evidence-based instructional strategies that educators can utilize to support students with mathematics disability or difficulty at any grade. Importantly, the strategies outlined in this document are targeted at improving learning outcomes for the following student populations:
- Students with a formal school identification of a specific learning disability in mathematics.
- Students with a non-mathematics related disability (e.g., speech and language disorder, specific learning disability in reading) who experience mathematics difficulty.
- At-risk students without a formal disability diagnosis who experience mathematics difficulty.
Students with Disabilities in Mathematics: Frequently Asked Questions (PDF) is a companion to the Evidenced Based Specially Designed Instruction in Mathematics Resource Guide. This document provides an overview of the characteristics of mathematics disability, as well as information about accommodations, modifications, and assistive technology that can support a student with a disability in mathematics.
