The History of TouchMath Helping SpEd students since 1975.

For nearly 50 years, TouchMath has been the go-to learning solution for educators around the world. Our multi-sensory approach to mathematics meets students where they are in their math journey and helps them develop new concrete, representational, and abstract skills. 

 

“TouchMath is set up one easy step at a time so that all children have a chance to succeed. The average child will feel like they are playing games and think math is easy. A remedial student will have the problems corrected easily and quickly.”
