students with learning disabilities and/or AD/HD. Participants will learn a
theoretical basis for developing best practices and how to target
instruction appropriately according to students' individual needs. This
course will focus on specific strategies that instructors can use to improve
students' ability to understand math and ways in which students can modify
how they approach math courses for better success.
Anyone interested in the workshop can register on-line. The above link notes
