Autism news: Tips for Teaching Subtraction Facts
February 28, 2019

If you are like many parents of children with autism, you have likely run into difficulties with teaching your child basic math.

If your child is very young, you may encounter these issues soon enough.

That's why I have been busy working on a new series of articles on teaching subtraction, multiplication, and division; I will likely talk about fractions as well.

Last week I posted an article outlining a step-by-step procedure for teaching subtraction facts.

Put that together with the article I have posted today, and you may be well-set to help your child understand subtraction. Today's article gives you tips and ideas for helping your child to better understand this basic math concept.

If your child isn't yet ready for subtraction, you may wish to check out our other articles on number recognition, counting, shapes, and addition.

At the end of this message look for the links where you can access today's article on subtraction as well as our earlier lessons on teaching more basic math.

Next week I plan to send you ideas for games that can turn an addition or subtraction lesson into a fun and motivating activity.

I want you to know that the time you spend working with your child is far more important than the vast majority of the accomplishments that the world defines as success.

It doesn't matter if the world notices. You and your child know the difference and that's what truly matters.

I wish you every success in helping your child learn.

Warm Regards,

Kay Donato
