Limited Capacity seats available

Applying mathematical concepts and problem solving are an integral part of everyday life and are required for navigating the world. There is a need to teach the pivotal skill of mathematical problem solving to students with severe disabilities which promotes independence in both current and future environments. The results of The Solutions Project shows that students will severe disabilities can learn mathematical problem solving and generalize to other formats. Two additional substudies showed that peers could implement the instruction and this approach could be embedded in a general education setting. This presentation will discuss implications of access to the general curriculum in mathematics. ??? The learner will be able to justify mathematical problem solving instruction for students with moderate and severe disabilities. ??? The learner will be able to summarize modifications made to schema based instruction for learners with moderate and severe intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder to teach mathematical word problem solving. ??? The learner will be able to see how a modified approach to schema-based instruction can be used to teach students with moderate/severe disabilities through video examples.
