This workshop/course is a shortened version of the 30 hour graduate level course which has been offered online and at universities. It includes the research, rationale and principle strategies we use in a multisensory math approach to teaching all students, not just special needs students. it is designed for use in inclusion classrooms, small group instruction and one-on-one tutoring or home schooling circumstances.

This workshop/course is unique in that it includes additional content not normally part of the three day multisensory math experience. It includes a segment on helping students with word problems, a segment on the multisensory lesson plan and strategies for intervention.

The approach is based on the neuroscience of math learning, the best recommendations from major research institutions and the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

I am a former classroom and demonstration teacher with over forty years in the field of teaching students with language based learning challenges such as dyslexia, attention and related difficulties. This approach to teaching math has been the focus of my teaching for the past twenty years. I am a presenter at major conferences and my course has been offered through universities in the United States.

Hi, I’m Instructor. Marilyn Zecher, M.A., CALT

A nationally certified Academic Language Therapist and former classroom/demonstration teacher, Ms Zecher is a specialist in applying multisensory strategies to a variety of content areas. She trains nationally for The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center in Rockville MD. A frequent presenter at regional and national conferences, Ms Zecher specializes in evidence based methods and interventions for all students but which are especially effective with students with learning differences. She teaches two graduate level Multisensory Math courses, and gives workshops on multisensory math, structured literacy as a component of ELA classrooms, written language & study skills.


Her presentations incorporate O-G strategies, the principles of UDL, and applications from NCTM, The What Works Clearinghouse and the Common Core State Standards. She teaches graduate level math methods courses, gives workshops on multisensory applications to math, written language and study skills. She also maintains a private practice supporting older students who have dyslexia and related learning differences. Her courses are offered through The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center in Rockville MD and some of her shorter workshops are offered on her own video channel:

2 months of Access to the 3-Dayw with Additional Content Workshop

This workshop was filmed in June of 2020 as an extended 3-Day workshop with additional content. If includes additional presentations from the full 30 hour course including strategies for helping students solve word problems, the Orton-Gillingham based lesson plan for mathematics, thoughts on what intervention should look like.

Hands-on Manipulatives form the Concrete Level of Experience
We use craft sticks for initial numeracy and place value representations so that students can build the place value system. Once they understand magnitude we can transition to more traditional models such as place value blocks.

You can also leave a text field blank to have it display nothing.

Pictorial Representations form the Second Instructional Level in the CRA Sequence

Students use visual representations as a sort of portable memory source for later reasoning.

At the Abstract Level of Experience Students Use Only Numerals and Perform Operations

Students build procedural fluency but with supports and incremental practice to build meaning. We also create differentiated instructional materials to meet the needs of various learners, including using larger font, ample white space and restricted number facts for learning new concepts.
