Students need to be able to concentrate on the task at hand. Using evidence-based, discrete and attractive accommodations provide the support needed to students with special needs so that they can focus on their work and not on what is holding them back. Every person learns in a different way and as a teacher, I feel that it is my moral responsibility to use whatever tools I can find to meet each individual where they are at academically, emotionally and physically. I believe in getting feedback from my students. My students have told me that a purchase of visual timers and noise cancelling headphones would help them prioritize and focus better on their work. They have asked for wiggle seats to help them regulate their ability to focus. They have asked for an area within the classroom where privacy can be provided while they work out their frustrations. Many of the students I teach show signs of being dyslexic. I have been training in how to teach students with dyslexia to read and this is a big accomplishment, however, schools don't always have the small materials needed to assist these students with reading. Overlays have been proven as a small remedy to making reading easier for students with dyslexia or with ermine syndrome. They are discrete to use and don't make my students feel singled out. The students I teach are growing older. I want to provide them with the discrete tools they have identified as needing. Using these accommodations can help them to find success, not only in school, but in their own lives. I am proud of my students for advocating for themselves and I am grateful for any help you can provide.
