Imagine you are teaching adjectives to your class. Your class includes a student with autism or any student struggling with information overload.
How would you differentiate the task to suit this child’s needs?
- A child with autism responds well to visuals – illustrations rather than print, which can be too overwhelming. You don’t want to cause information overload that may lead to frustration.
- A child with autism is very literal, so make sure any instructions are simple, precise and do not cause confusion.
- Be sure that any sequence of instructions uses simple terms. Use of colour can also help your student keep on track.
- The task should allow for a stepped progression leading to the final written result.
- A graphic organiser will help your student organise his writing, before attempting the final step.
