Allow students with disabilities to take a wide range of classes at the high school level. Psychology? Modern Dance? German? The catalog of possible options should be open to all.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.

Idea #27: Adapt in an emergency

Posted on April 27, 2013 in Autism

Another idea from You’re Welcome by Paula Kluth and Patrick Schwarz

To communicate the idea that all students may need adaptations at some point in the year, consider placing an on-the-spot adaptations kit in every teacher’s classroom.

Your kit might include any number of helpful materials such as sticky notes, highlighter pens and tape, a few desktop fidgets, pencil grips, letter and word stickers, a single-message communicator, a blank first-then board, and a jump drive filled with helpful graphic organizers.
