Understanding Learning Disabilities: How Processing Affects Mathematics Learning, developed by the York Region District School Board, is a Companion Resource to the Understanding Learning Disabilities Waterfall Chart. Referred to as the “math waterfall chart”, this comprehensive resource is designed for educators to support students with learning disabilities in the area of mathematics, from kindergarten to grade 12; additionally, it provides the starting points to think, plan and support mathematics programming in response to a student’s assessed areas of strength and/or need. The math waterfall chart lists various processing areas, including: phonological processing, language, visual-motor skills, visual-spatial (perceptual) skills, memory, processing speed, attention and executive function. Additionally, the math waterfall chart provides a definition, possible signs, assessment/instructional strategies, environmental strategies and innovative technologies for each of these processing areas in relation to mathematics.
