Accommodations for Learners with Disabilities

Hello everyone,

I am a Learning and Development Facilitator who delivers training workshops within a financial institution. I have an upcoming workshop which will have 2 learners who are visually impaired.  What are some of the differentiated strategies that we can use for adult learners with disabilities?

 

Thanks,

Su

Hi Su, 

I encourage you to review a few resources on Universal Design. Here are a couple in our LINCS Resources. https://lincs.ed.gov/professional-development/resource-collections/profile-1004 and https://lincs.ed.gov/professional-development/resource-collections/profile-897. They both provide a great resource with ideas and strategies.

Thanks!    I really like this, especially that they include the cognitive piece in accessibility and have options for simplifying language.   I wax hopeful about having a button for "I just don't get this!"   on any page that would link to something breaking it down a little further or a concrete connection.

Hi, Su -

Thanks for reaching out for resources to help your learners.  I suggest taking a look at this site, for some ideas.  Please keep us posted on other resources you find, and how the workshop goes with these two learners.

Best,
