Strategies for Learning and Teaching

  • The student may need specific orientation training in relation to the school buildings and grounds.
  • Note that red, green and blue markers can be more difficult for the student to read when one is writing on the whiteboard.
  • Lighting should be adequate but without glare.
  • Windows should be behind the student, and the teacher should never teach from in front of the window.
  • Contrast with background should be considered when utilising print.
  • Consider using paper that is neither glossy nor glaring.
  • Students may need extra time to complete work. If doing repetitive work assign them fewer questions/problems than their peers. If using a manual signing system, ensure signs are accurate and consistent.
