Special Education Tips for Visually Chunking Math

Do you have a student with special needs who struggles to complete math assignments?

In today’s Teacher Tips newsletter, learn how to “chunk” math assignments to help your student with special needs approach the task in a more manageable way.

To get started, decide what type of visual chunking you will use: visual cues on the paper, redoing the paper visually, or cutting the paper into sections are a few options you may use.

Show your student the chunked assignments and encourage him/her to work through them one at a time. This should decrease the negative behaviors that may arise due to math assignments and help your student see math as an approachable task.
