The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects on teaching math computation skills to students with learning disabilities (LD) using the GoMath program and to examine the teachers’ and students’ satisfaction with this program in their teaching and learning. Four, 3rd and 4th graders with LD were taught by one special education teacher in a resource room and participated in learning computation skills for 60 minutes, 5 days per week for 12 weeks, using the Go Math program. A multiple baseline research design with A B phases across students was used to evaluate their performance. The findings indicated that all of the participants increased their addition, subtraction and multiplication computation scores using the GoMath program, and the teachers and students were generally satisfied with the program and its supplemental materials. The results of this study support the use of the GoMath program providing explicit instruction with a multisensory approach to teach math computation skills to students with LD.
