If you play a role in helping a student with special needs learn math, then I have pages for you.
I was a long time math teacher. When my son was diagnosed with autism in 2008, I turned my focus to special education, earning a master’s in special ed. In turn this led me to creating CTSPEDMATHDUDE. The primary goal of this website is to help make math accessible for all students – math that is appropriate for the respective student.
I have used the same instructional approaches with individuals from as young as 5 years old to helping a 23 year old learn to count money. I work with life-skills math and AP Statistics and Calculus. These are approaches I shared with math teacher candidates and special education teacher candidates I have trained for the Connecticut Department of Higher Education, University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, Capital Region Education Council, and University of Saint Joseph (my alma mater).
