Add+ Vantage Math Recovery, Intervention, Math


There are a variety of ways to identify a student who may have a specific learning disability in math, or who is just struggling with math. Whether it is cognitive, social / behavioral, or physical characteristics, or through assessment, all these students have one common need, they need a strong intervention to improve their mathematical skills. This intervention should be one that is research-based and supports students who are struggling with math or have a math learning disability. AVMR uses a variety of evidence-based practices including explicit instruction, visual support, and formative assessment to act and adjust to students' needs. Add+ Vantage Math Recovery offers an assessment first approach of improving instruction and intervention for those students who struggle. This project is an implementation of Add+ Vantage Math Recovery’s AVMR 1 assessment on a student who lacks the skills to meet the facile constructs that AVMR 1 assesses. Based on the assessment, AVMR intervention was used to improve adding and subtracting strategies and structuring. A post assessment was then implemented to determine AVMR’s interventions impact on the student.
