FREE Webinar: Seeing the “Fun and Games” in Math
July 24, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
About the Webinar:
This webinar will focus on activities that parents can use at home to support their children’s math learning. Some activities will offer tools and strategies to help build general numeracy skills (i.e. addition and multiplication) using visual models and games. The webinar will also feature tools that can help children with learning disabilities (LDs) better understand, document, and communicate what they are learning in school.
