Early Numeracy Curriculum teaches early developing numeracy skills to elementary students with significant developmental disabilities, including autism. Its primary objective for educators is to lay the foundation for later math instruction by stressing fluency in number sense.

It begins with counting with one-to-one correspondence and progresses to more complex skills including using sets for addition and creating ABAB patterns. Lessons are taught systematically incorporating scripted lessons, least intrusive prompt strategies, teachable objectives, and ongoing assessments.

The 24 lessons (divided among four progressive units) focus on fun themes, like Mardi Gras or bugs, and give students ample opportunity to practice using a variety of hands-on materials.
