I have been asked on occasion, by the University of St. Thomas, to be a guest speaker on best practices for teaching Secondary Mathematics in Special Education.
Here you will find a plethora of ideas on how to teach Math to your students with special needs. Please note that the Basic Facts:Strategies to Make Facts Stick is Nancy Nuttings work. Nancy is a great resource for Special Education & Math in the Minneapolis & St. Paul region. Please look for her workshops including the Algebra Academy hosted District 287.
