I received an email from Tom McFadden, National Executive Director of the Canadian Deafblind Association, regarding the opportunity to publish an article in the September issue of Intervention Magazine, which is the official magazine of the Canadian Deafblind Association.  I am excited about the possibility of Slide-A-Round Math Manipulatives helping students thousands of miles away from Rome, Georgia.  With my information and strategies in Intervention Magazine,  Canadian teachers will be informed about new instructional materials available to increase student achievement in math.

When I visit school districts and share my ideas with administrators, teachers, and parents at state and national conferences, I stress the importance of teachers having several options to meet the specific needs of their students. As we all know, “One shoe does not fit all”; this is especially true for students with significant sensory and learning deficits.

I am planning to demonstrate my manipulatives at the 2014 Institute Designed for Educating All Students (IDEAS)  Conference on St. Simons Island, Georgia  on  June 2-6  and at the 2014 MEGA in Mobile, Alabama on July 14-18.  This will be my first time at the IDEAS conference, and I will be returning to the MEGA conference for the second consecutive year. I am excited to share my ideas with educators and help them meet the individual needs of their students- with and without IEPs- for the 2014-15 school year.
