This method involves teaching students to use their strengths to compensate for their weaknesses, and a scaffolding approach is employed. First, techniques and strategies are demonstrated. Then, multi-sensory methods help the students internalize the process. Finally, students demonstrate the skills to manage their work independently.

A unique program is created for each student. Possible topics of focus may include:
Math instruction may include creative projects, multisensory instruction, and the learning of rules and skills such as multiplication through interactive games, music, software, and manipulatives.
