Evidence-based strategies for physical disability

Evidence-based strategies are those that have been evaluated by researchers within school settings, and found to be effective.

Tailor activities to be as inclusive as possible 

Plan ahead

Consider preparing equipment or adjustments that encourage full participation of the student before beginning an activity.

Consider adjustments to teaching style

Allow more time to learn skills and understand concepts

Some students may need extra time to process and learn new skills in the classroom. It may be helpful to break down key learning concepts and activities into smaller but challenging sequences.

Use various methods to teach

Visual aids, such as picture cards, can demonstrate a task sequence or a key learning concept. Consider using material such as captioned videos to teach a skill.
