How do you teach math to children with Down Syndrome?

David is 5 and in Kindergarten. He is doing well with sight reading and his speech/sentences are coming but math is really hard for him. He knows the numbers by sight but is yet unable to sequence them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • i would suggest using a number line so he can see the relationship of the numbers and that will also help him for addition and subtraction. alot of kids (special needs or not) really respond well to using number lines..... you could give it a try. o it also helps with counting by twos and 5's and 10's and all that too. gl :)
