Mathematics is abstract, difficult and always threatening to many students especially those with learning difficulties. This paper attempts to integrate mathematical instruction with IT approach. This teaching approach is applicable to children across the whole range of abilities, especially for low-achievers. In the paper, we attempt to relate the teaching approach with children’s intellectual abilities. The age-range selected was from kindergarten up to Primary six. This paper mainly describe some teaching activities that would provide a rough guide for teaching mathematics concepts to children with SEN; in which IT is used as a teaching tool to make the abstract concepts visual and concrete. Some simple programs have been developed to illustrate the teaching methodology. Such an approach may help students with SEN more easily understand mathematics concepts, and as a result, feel more confident about them and school mathematics.
