Instruction in school and at home can often be adapted to accommodate the needs of children with disabilities. Specific teaching strategies can be used by teachers to modify instruction in most subject areas to improve student comprehension and the quality of their work. Parents can use similar strategies to teach living skills at home and in the community.

 

starAccessible Instructional Materials

Some students with disabilities have difficulty reading textbooks and other learning materials. For example, a student who is blind may not be able to see the book, and a student who has a physical disability may not be able to hold the book. To succeed in school, these students and others like them need learning materials in specialized formats called “accessible instructional materials” or “AIM.” The federal special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), includes a requirement that schools provide AIM to elementary and secondary students with disabilities who need them.
