How does the human brain process math and how do different brains see it differently?
Numbers are an abstract concept. If we don’t have a good mental image we can’t compute this abstract concept because we don’t see it in our head. In other words, we can’t memorize what we don’t understand.
This is especially true of teaching math to autistic children, who struggle with mental image.
During this webinar we will be discussing:
- Why the current way of teaching math is wrong from a neurological point of view
- Using the individual’s passion to teach math to children with developmental delays in an enjoyable context
- Applying math to reality to make sense out of it

Mendability is a telehealth program focused on the well-being of the brain.
We use sensory enrichment to stimulate the human brain and enable it to treat itself. This happens when the brain creates better connections to replace the ones it didn’t develop or has lost.
