Neuroscience has profoundly impacted the way we teach mathematics. Knowing why some students fall behind before third grade or why others fail to gain fluency with multiplication facts are only two insights that have helped us develop alternative ways of meeting the needs of those who learn differently. This session will highlight some of what we have learned and how we are using that knowledge to help struggling learners.
Expert Speaker: Marilyn Zecher, a nationally certified Academic Language Therapist and former classroom/demonstration teacher, is a specialist in integrating a multisensory Orton-Gillingham-based instructional approach to the teaching of mathematics with evidence-based strategies from the What Works Clearinghouse, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards. She specializes in multisensory math, literacy instruction and study skills. Ms. Zecher trains nationally for The Multisensory Training Institute of the nonprofit Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center in Rockville, MD. Her courses and workshops have also been featured at several universities including Loyola University Baltimore and IMPACT2 Stem Training at Mississippi State University.
