Mathematics Instruction for Students with Visual Impairments: What is there and where can we go Joan Adrienne Malasig, Student, Rutgers University, joanadrienn.malasig@rutgers.edu, and Dake Zhang, Assistant Professor, Rutgers University, dake.zhang@gse.rutgers.edu With funding from Aresty Undergraduate Research Program at Rutgers University, we conducted a review of literature on existing intervention studies for teaching mathematics to students with visual impairments (VI). We were interested in examining the effectiveness of existing methods to instruct students with VI to learn mathematics and in evaluating the research rigor of the existing interventions, with the aim to provide a solid understanding of what has been done and where we should go in research on teaching mathematics to students with VI. This study was presented in CEC 2016 in St Louis, MO, and was published in Journal of Childhood & Developmental Disorders. We found this topic very important. World Health Organization 60
