Special Needs Students: Adam (gifted), Madison (visual impairment) and Paul (hearing impairment)

Adjustments: Special Needs

Teachers need to adjust the lesson plan to accommodate the following special needs students.


1.      Adam is our gifted student. Once the required activities are completed in class, he can collaborate with another person, if he wishes and complete yet another exercise. Alone, or in pairs, he will create a one page mini brochure  on one of the regions of his choice. Adam can present this mini broshure in front of the class or simply hand it in for grading.

Visual Impairment:

2.       For Madison who has a visual impairment, all  written work is modified to accommodate her level of learning. All written work in class is done with a sighted peer. Classmates are trained to serve as guides when Madison is in need of help. Educating classmates as to better serve Madison is the key; explaining to them that Madison cannot interpret gestures and other forms of non-verbal communication, is one of the examples on how the students can help.

3.      For Paul who has a hearing impairment, the visuals at the beginning of the lesson will allow him to create an initial sense of the lesson topic being discussed. He also has a hearing device to help facilitate the process. He sits at the front of the class and is monitored continuously by the teacher to make sure he has heard correctly the instructions for the activity. Furthermore, all the assignments and class activities given to the class are written out on the board for Paul to see.
