Students with Disabilities in Mathematics: Frequently Asked Questions

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This document provides an overview of the characteristics of mathematics disability and presents evidence-based strategies to support students with mathematics disability and/or difficulty at all instructional levels. Importantly, the strategies outlined in this document are targeted at improving learning outcomes for the following student populations:
• Students with a formal school identification of a specific learning disability in mathematics.
• Students with a non-mathematics related disability (e.g., speech and language disorder, specific learning disability in reading) who experience mathematics difficulty.
• At-risk students without a formal disability diagnosis who experience mathematics difficulty.
