Did you know that at least 6 students in every primary and secondary classroom are facing significant challenges to their learning, and therefore to their ability to access the curriculum, because of diagnosed or un-diagnosed language, literacy and/or attention disorders? Did you also know that there are many adaptations and accommodations that all teachers can readily employ, that can facilitate these students’ ability to process and retain classroom information, and then express their knowledge and ideas effectively?
