Subject: Help!! Urgently need ideas for math programs

Hi,
Looking for a math program that works well for students with LD's, processing issues in language, visual and auditory areas, perceptual issues, memory issues and likely dyscalculia. This is for older students and it must work well for remediation. Numerous gaps need to be filled in starting at mid first grade. Students are 11/12 yrs. old in the 5th/6th grade.

Thank You,
SuseyQ

My dd learned TouchMath in 6th grade. It really turned her ability and attitude around. I've also used it with a 7th grade boy I've tutored. For basic math, TouchMath has been the only thing I've seen work quickly and effectively.

Thanks for the advice. Math U See looks good. Touch math is rather steep. Has anyone heard about Voyage math? Is it effective for remediation?

Thank You,
