TouchMath University

Professional Learning

A growing body of research continues to validate the TouchMath system and point to a common conclusion: our multisensory approach and focus on the CRA sequential strategy improves math comprehension and mastery. And in order for students to conquer math with our resources, we are here to make sure educators are well-prepared to teach with them.

TouchMath University approaches professional learning differently. Our programs are interactive and combine job-embedded knowledge with ongoing support for general and SPED educators, leaders and administrators. We believe if we give educators the skills and knowledge they need to help students gain a better conceptual understanding of math, everyone wins.
