I had heard a bunch of negative about touch math over the years and when a colleague was insistent up the whole grade level incorporating it into lessons I did my own research and pulled up credible site after site speaking negatively of it.

I don't typically take such a stance against others' ideas, but when it puts my kids' education at risk, I am a pit-bull. Luckily I was able to convince the P (who is really good friends with the teacher and usually bulldozed by the teacher) otherwise.

I do not have any of my research still, as my computer crashed, but I do recommend you at least Google it. The system, if used, only needs to be used with sp. ed. children who are having a difficult time with numbers already. However, I recall one site were a bunch of sp.ed. teachers unloaded on the program.
