Teaching Students with Sensory and Physical Impairments
The course is best suited to teachers working in an inclusive environment who need to support students with sensory or physical impairments.
Students with sensory disabilities such as those who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, or hearing impaired often bring auxiliary aids and adaptive equipment to the classroom. Aids assist in gaining access to the classroom; however, they do not ensure success.
The classroom instructor is responsible for considering the needs of every student when teaching. The course focuses on different kinds of impairments, discusses the defining characteristics and specific needs of students and shares some researched based intervention and strategies to promote positive behaviour and help learners develop the required skills.
This valuable resource shows teachers how they can teach in a highly effective manner that will foster the independence of students with visual and hearing impairments in a mainstream classroom.
