Accomodating the needs of
Developing adaptations and accommodations for a child with special needs is a continuous process that involves each child's collaborative team. The first step is to assess the child's abilities and the environment where the child will be spending time.
The activities and materials used in most early childhood classrooms are designed to meet the needs of many children with or without disabilities.My students are not 'dumb' although by the time I finally get them in middle school, many are convinced they are.I have *huge* problems with the stuff I have read about Universal Design.The other room is easily large enough to accommodate two girls.But your eye and your ear will accommodate themselves to both.
In schools, the examples I saw of so-called Universal Design consisted mainly in watering down the curriculum.
