Adapting Learning Activities
Learning activities often need to be adapted to cater for the varied abilities of students with special needs. Adapting activities involves creative thinking when planning how communication, student engagement and curriculum will come together so that every student is offered an equally rewarding learning experience. It is the role of the teacher to ensure that students with special needs can not only access knowledge but can demonstrate their understanding also.
The aim of adaptions to activities is to engage student attention and make learning relevant and meaningful. Adaptions are about helping students to make achievements. Adaptions should be well planned and prioritised to meet a students learning outcomes. Often adaptions for one student are helpful for many other students.
