Supporting Students with Physical Impairments

Supporting Students with Physical Impairments Choose one physical disability area you are interested in exploring further such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, or Muscular Dystrophy. How might the limitations of this physical impairment affect a student’s behavior and/or access to learning? What physical or educational accommodations can an educator and/or related service provider make to address these needs? What assistive technology tools or devices might provide greater access and independence for students?

Guided Response: Review the responses of several classmates’ and respond to at least two of your classmates by providing feedback, further examples, questions, or friendly guidance on their ideas for supports, services, and assistive technology for an individual with a physical impairment.
