ASDEC courses are open to the general public. Some courses have prerequisites as indicated in the Courses page. Details on Payments can be found on the Payment page.
Please sign up for a referral to an available Academic Therapist. ASDEC will refer families to our Academic Therapists in mid-to late July. You will receive an email from us when we find an Academic Therapist with an opening.
Please note that ASDEC Academic Therapists work with students one-to-one a minimum of three times per week. Academic Therapists may work with your child at a school, library, or home office.

Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.
Secondary school mathematics teachers know that many students arrive in middle and high school classes ill prepared for successfully mastering course content. National testing data demonstrate that significant numbers of students fall behind before third grade and never catch up. Many middle and high school students struggle with major concepts such as multiplication/division, fractions/decimals and are unable to reason mathematically. This workshop will offer evidence based strategies for teaching pre-algebra, algebra and geometry to all secondary school students including those who struggle with math. Techniques for differentiation, inclusion and intervention will be modeled. Participants will leave with ideas and some manipulatives for modeling math. The workshop is built on previous conference presentations given for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
