Multisensory Math Winter Workshop

Marilyn Zecher’s Multisensory Math Approach  Workshop (Presented by Julie Eden)

The multisensory approach is a unique way of “thinking” about teaching mathematics for all students. This program applies Orton-Gillingham multisensory instructional strategies to mathematics. This approach fits easily with recommendations from current research and suggestions from the National Math Panel regarding instruction for struggling learners. Hands-on work with manipulative objects is recommended for all students at all ages. It enhances both concept integration and memory. This approach is especially important for LD students and those with conceptual gaps. It is, however, an approach which is appropriate for all students.

The Multisensory Math Workshop will introduce educators to innovative techniques for teaching mathematics in a hands-on, multisensory way. Participants will learn tangible strategies to make math more accessible for diverse learners.

Presentations are created by Marilyn Zecher, M.A., CALT. Mrs. Zecher is a Teacher, Nationally Certified Academic Language Therapist
and frequent conference presenter for IDA, LDA and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. She specializes in the application
of O-G instructional strategies for a multitude of content areas including Mathematics, Study Skills, Reading, and Language. Visit this website to watch a clip of her demonstrating the approach: https://multisensorymath.online/

The Presenter: 

Ms. Eden is a Math Teacher at Swift School
in Roswell, Georgia. She is certified through
a practicum of teaching in this methodology
through ASDEC. She is currently participating
in the next level of the practicum as a coach
and supervisor.

Your time in Ms. Eden’s workshop(s) will be
spent engaging in research and evidence based
strategies while working with manipulative
objects, implementing precise instructional language, creating lesson
plans and actively participating. You will learn new approaches to
immediately implement in your instructional plans to help your students
succeed. academically.

Utilizing a different way of thinking about teaching math concepts,
Multisensory Math demonstrates an effective model of instruction
for both inclusive classrooms and individuals. It works for initial
introductions or filling the gaps for students who are “instructional
casualties” of predominantly procedural instruction. This multisensory
approach is not simply based on manipulatives but focuses on
instructional language as the key to unlocking mathematics for all
