About the Blog

The purpose of this blog is twofold:

  • to be a clearing house for math strategies and artifacts to help make math accessible for kids with special needs
  • to facilitate discussion about these topics

While I do offer fee based services, my main focusĀ is to help kids with special needs. This includes a great deal of pro-bono work.

At the top is a menu of categories for posts and various related pages.

Perhaps most important in all of this is the concept of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The photo below says it all. Most if not all of the strategies and artifacts presented on this site can be used as UDL in initial instruction.

    Randy, I visited your classroom two years ago as a teacher candidate at St. Joe’s. Now, I’m a Special Education Teacher in Hartford. I’m constantly reflecting on my experience in your classroom from years ago to help the wonderful students I’m currently working with. Your Blog is amazing and plan to use several strategies tomorrow in class. Just wanted to say thank you.

    • Hey Mark. That is very kind of you to share and means a lot to me. I’m actually starting to focus on my blog a great deal more – a lot of autism related stuff is going up soon. Please email me if you need anything.
