Special needs in mainstream classes K-12

26 June 2017

Claudia Vera supports you to meet the needs of all of your students.

Just as with any other student, we are aspiring for excellence for the student…. What we can do today in our classrooms today can really have an important impact on the lives of our students…

…apply the A.T.P. approach, that is, ask the person… know your student; that is the best place to start… it is helpful knowing the diagnosis but it is even more helpful to know the person… show that you value them and that their contribution matters… talk to other people who can help you…the Department has some really valuable tools that can support you.

An adjustment is about giving access to learning… we refer to making adjustments as an opportunity… that student is also teaching you how to making teaching and learning accessible to every child that comes into your classroom.
