Reflection: Students with Disabilities Interpreting an Idea - Section 2: Let's Make a Chart


I have found that sometimes students can become overly focused on the drawing of the boxes and flow chart rather than the writing. If this is the case for students that have special needs, I will draw the boxes onto a white piece of paper for them. I eliminate a task in order to gain focus for the learning task. Processing time is often an issue and by modifying the lesson in this way, students can focus on processing information.
