1-2-3 Back to Basics

Special Education Tips Special Needs Resources

Sometimes going back to basics with the tools we use to teach any child foundation skills is the way to go.  Instead of looking for the shiny new object that can magically teach concepts a child is stuck on, we often need to go back to how we learned it in the old days. My brother and I both used an abacus for learning math skills.  I can remember my dad sitting at the kitchen table teaching both of us.  It didn't matter that my brother has Down syndrome and I don't.  We both needed the visuals. Of course, our Abacus was not as pretty as this one.  I'm all about upgrading the abacus to a more sturdy tool.  Melissa & Doug have done just that!  Love this abacus! http://amzn.to/1MMvY92
