A research team from The Hospital for Sick Children and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto released a noteworthy study that followed students over the course of two years in a randomized controlled trial (RCT) funded by the US Department of Education.  The results of the extensive study showed positive effects in elementary grades on a range of math outcomes for students in the JUMP Math group. At the end of this two-year study, progress of the JUMP Math students was equal to or significantly greater than the control group on every measure of achievement and often greater than expected progress based on test norms.

DOJ about accommodations

In the area of math, if a test is to accurately reflect a dyslexic or dyscalculic student’s aptitude or achievement in math, accommodations (like a calculator) must be put in place to ensure the test is accurately assessing the knowledge, understanding, or problem solving ability, rather than processing speed, handwriting ability, or ability to speed or accuracy of retrieving basic math facts.
