Teaching Early Numeracy to Children with Developmental Disabilities
It sets out key principles of teaching and learning underpinning an evidence-based teaching approach and provides clear guidance on how educators can plan and implement a structured teaching program so that every child can be given a positive experience in learning numeracy and achieve significant outcomes, maximizing their potential.
The book is supported by a comprehensive set of online resources for use in the classroom, including 90+ lesson plans carefully tailored to provide sequenced learning experiences for children and school students who may need them most.

About Corinna Grindle
Richard P. Hastings is a Professor of Psychology and Education in the Centre for Educational Development Appraisal and Research at the University of Warwick, UK, and Monash Warwick Professor in the Centre for Developmental Psychiatry and Psychology at Monash University, Australia. Richard is an internationally leading researcher focused on children and adults with developmental disabilities (especially intellectual disability and/or autism) and their families, and one of the highest cited special education researchers internationally. His research interests include mental health and well-being in schools, and developing and testing academic interventions for children with special educational needs in both mainstream and special education settings.
Dr Robert J. (Bob) Wright holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from the University of Queensland (Australia) and a doctoral degree in mathematics education from the University of Georgia. He is an adjunct professor in mathematics education at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Bob is an inter nationally recognized leader in assessment and instruction relating to children's early arithmetical knowledge and strategies, publishing six books, and many articles and papers in this field. His work over the last 25 years has included the development of the Mathematics Recovery Program, which focuses on providing specialist training for teachers to advance the numeracy levels of young children assessed as low-attainers. In Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and elsewhere, this programme has been implemented widely, and applied extensively to classroom teaching and to average and able learners as well as low-attainers. Bob has conducted several research projects funded by the Australian Research Council including the most recent project focusing on assessment and intervention in the early arithmetical learning of low-attaining 8- to 10-year-olds.
