Senior Researcher Authors Article for September 2012 Issue of Exceptional Parent Magazine

September 12, 2012



CAMBRIDGE, MA–Senior Researcher and Count Me In! author Judy Storeygard has written “My Child “Can”: Going Beyond the ADHD Label to Help Students Learn Mathematics” for the Annual Education Issue of Exceptional Parent magazine. The article focuses on strategies culled from Count Me In! that teachers and parents can use to help their children with special needs learn mathematics more effectively and comprehensively.

The goal of this article is to help teachers think beyond diagnostic labels and procedural instructional approaches and to understand how students learn and build on their strengths. It focuses on strategies and anecdotes to help teachers keep their whole class discussions active; provide consistent structures and routines in math; and implement interactive technologies to make mathematics learning accessible for students with focusing disabilities. “My Child “Can””encourages collaboration between teachers and parents of students with ADHD to help monitor, assess, and share learning needs and mathematical strengths as students display them—both in the classroom and at home.

“My Child “Can”: Going Beyond the ADHD Label to Help Students Learn Mathematics” is available to Exceptional Parent subscribers digitally and in-print. To order a copy of the September 2012 issue or learn more about this publication, please visit:
