Children with disabilities, like any other child, respond positively to materials they feel cater to their needs. Components of materials and the classroom may still need adaptations depending on the need. Adaptations change how a child learns something. This entails making changes or accommodations to the environment, materials, or equipment.
Examples of adaptations:
Always consider the child’s interests, preferences, life experiences, culture, personality, home language, motivators, family values and traditions, skills and abilities, knowledge, needs, and family structure. Before making decisions about adaptations.
