For reluctant writers, introduce novel or unexpected materials and supports. Try old typewriters, novelty or colored pencils, voice-activated software or story starters.

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.

Day 12: Teacher’s choice

Posted on December 12, 2014 in News

Donors Choose bannerStill stumped? Why not let the teacher choose. Encourage staff members at your local school to sign on to Donor’s Choose to post their inclusion-related needs and wants. Consider seeking funds for assistive technology, sensory supports, seating options, visual supports, e-readers, cooperative learning games, accessible playground equipment or accessible learning materials (e.g., weighted pencils, manipulatives, magnifiers, mini dry erase boards). Not only will your post potentially garner you wish-list resources, but it may also help potential funders become more aware of inclusive schooling and the practices and supports related to it.
