At last, a book for teaching practical math skills to kids and adults with Down syndrome or other learning delays, using hands-on activities that appeal to their learning style. This guide focuses on teaching essential, basic math -- addition and subtraction -- and concepts about time, money, counting, measuring, and more, that empower learners to be as independent as possible with daily living skills. DeAnna Horstmeier is an experienced educator and the parent of an adult son with Down syndrome. Her teaching technique is appropriate for preschoolers just being introduced to number concepts as well as adults who may not have learned basic concepts in school. Conveniently, lessons come with stated objectives that can be easily incorporated into a student's IEP at school. Teaching Math to People with Down Syndrome and Other Hands-On Learners is about mastering math skills and concepts that are essential to surviving in a community. The guide recognizes that for someone with Down syndrome, or another developmental disability, basic number sense -- understanding sequences and place value, written numbers and the like -- as well as the ability to do simple computations are keys to independence. Parents, teachers, and counselors can use these techniques successfully at home or at school. Get started today!
