LaDonna's Suggestions

  1. Ask students if they require alternative ways to interact with the material.
  2. Ensure that students are fully engaged in classroom activities.
  3. Use methods that give a feeling of belonging in the classroom.
  4. Adopt and make textbooks available early enough for conversion to alternate formats.
  5. Use visual aids to accompany lectures and oral presentations.
