"Reading and Math Disabilities: Two Sides of the Same Coin?"

Hello colleagues, Have teachers observed that some learners who have challenges with reading also have difficulty with math? How would you explain this connection? What kind of instructional support do you provide to students in reading? How about for math? Do you intentionally link the two in your teaching?

Christina Samuels takes up this issue in a recent Ed Week blog.

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts.

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
