2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

Students with disabilities have historically been victims of low expectations in mathematics, resulting in inequitable opportunities in and access to the general curriculum. Despite mathematical problem solving being the "cornerstone of mathematical learning"?? according to mathematics experts (e.g., National Council of Teachers of Mathematics), it has received limited attention from researchers (Spooner, Root, Saunders, & Browder, 2017; King, Lemons, and Davidson, 2016). This presentation will feature four studies that used evidence-based practices to teach students with autism and intellectual disability to solve mathematical word problems. Implications for practice and future research will be discussed.
