Accommodating children with special needs in the classroom
It’s up to you to create a classroom environment conducive to learning and supports all students and their needs.
Below are a few tips to help you meet their varying needs.
The first step is to assess the child's abilities and the environment where the child will be spending time.
Once the goals and objectives are identified and expectations for the child's participation in that environment are established, the team selects or creates adaptations and accommodations that address those needs.
The purpose of an adaptation is to assist children in compensating for intellectual, physical or behavioral challenges.
