Does anyone know of a good program or resource for teaching math to a student with a severe dual expressive-receptive language disorder? I have a student who has average nonverbal intelligence but functions at a 68 IQ when it comes to verbal intelligence. He can perform rote skills, like adding, subtracting, and counting money with fluency. He is also great at patterns. However, anything that involves language, applied problem-solving, or abstract concepts is painful for both me and him. We've been working on money using TouchMoney, but he is stuck on seeing how one nickel is the same value as five pennies. He will stare at a nickel for minutes without replying when asked "How many nickels do you see?" because he isn't sure if the answer is one or five. I'm about to lose it, and he already has. Please help! I'm not looking for basic gen ed strategies, because that's not this kid. He is quite honestly the most severe and perplexing student I have ever worked with in regards to language. His vocabulary is so limited that he doesn't know words like: yard, collar, eraser, and so many other common words. He's in fifth grade, and English is his first language. I am now working with him one-on-one for a few chunks of the day, and I really don't know how I am going to make it through June! Am I expecting too much of him? If so, what else should I be working on? I really need some advice.
