Expertise: Dr. Bryant has served as the Principal Investigator on an early numeracy, response to intervention grant funded by the Institute of Education Sciences, the 3-Tier Mathematics Elementary & Secondary Intervention Project funded by the Texas Education Agency, and the MSTAR Intervention program funded by the Meadows Foundation. Dr. Bryant was chosen to participate in the National Science Foundation funded “Beginning Substantive Collaboration between Mathematics Education and Special Education Symposium: Teaching Mathematics to Students within the RtI Process.” She is the author/co-author of books, tests, and research articles that focus on educational interventions for improving the mathematics and reading performance of students with learning disabilities, and the use of assistive technology for individuals with disabilities. Her research articles represent 20 years of working collaboratively with school districts and teachers on interventions for students with learning disabilities and who are at-risk for educational difficulties.

Jessica H Hunt

Assistant Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education

+1 512 232 7518

Expertise: Jessica’ overarching research goal is to redirect and re-conceptualize research and instructional practice in mathematics such that students with LD can grow their conceptual knowledge. Two primary focal areas within this goal are a) documenting initial or informal conceptual understandings of children labeled as LD within a targeted mathematical area (i.e., rational numbers) and b) understanding how growth of conceptual knowledge occurs in the targeted area and can be nurtured through the learning process. A natural and essential extension of this work includes a secondary focal area concerning c) instructional practices special educators use to facilitate children’s learning of mathematics and, more holistically, how educators can be supported to improve their teaching.

Sarah R Powell

Expertise: Sarah’s research interests include developing and testing interventions for students with mathematics difficulties. She is especially interested in peer tutoring, word-problem solving, and the role of symbols for understanding mathematics. During two years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia, Sarah designed and implemented randomized-control trials related to non-symbolic understanding of mathematics, manipulative use, and explicit mathematics vocabulary instruction for students with mathematics difficulties.
