Teaching number recognition in a child with autism

Carrie Caceres-Taguiang

ABSTRACT: Number recognition can be defined as the ability to identify and name basic numerals. Number recognition encompasses a variety of separate skills such as matching, identifying, labelling and also 1:1 correspondence between numbers (in their symbolic form) to quantities and written words. This case study will highlight the barriers that a pupil encountered when learning to order the numbers 1, 2 and 3. This case study will highlight what prerequisite skills were taught and how programme changes, particularly involving the use of an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device, eventually aided the pupil in learning to identify the numbers 1, 2 and 3.
