Ascend Math Intervention for
Special Education!

Students with special needs and those qualifying for tier 3 intervention find the extra help they need from Ascend Math.  Perhaps it’s the true individualization, the multiple approaches to objectives both conceptual and algorithmic, the motivational aspects, or all of these. Regardless, special education teachers are ecstatic with the results they’re seeing.


Ascend Math allows us to target Special Education students while meeting the geographic challenges of our district. Ascend gives us a clear understanding of student math gaps and helps meet those instructional needs.

We had a teacher who had a class of very low achieving special-education students. Many of them were testing at the third-grade level for math skills. She immediately saw what her students were accomplishing and became one of the biggest promoters of Ascend.
