Could you draw a picture of a city from memory—after only a 20-minute helicopter ride over it?

 

Diagnosed at age three with autism, Stephen Wiltshire showed a keen interest in drawing by age five. His early drawings focused on animals and cars, but he quickly became fascinated by the landmark buildings around his home in London, and created detailed architectural sketches.

Veronica Choi's insight:

Autistic children often display intense interest in specific things. It is important for the teachers to utilise that interest in child's learning for engagement and to help them develop such skills further so that they can discover their positive aspects and raise their self worth.

The Australian Curriculum v4.2 Students with disability

The Australian Curriculum v4.2 Students with disability | Special education needs | Scoop.it

Via Marnie Gerrard
Veronica Choi's insight:

It is important for schools and teachers to provide adjustments (curriculum, instructional, environmental) to meet the personalised learning needs of children with disabilities. This is to ensure that students can participate fully in the same learning as the other kids in the class ("on the same basis"). Useful information to address student diversity in the school.

Marnie Gerrard's curator insight, April 10, 2013 1:10 AM

The Australian Curriculum has a booklet here titled "Student Diversity Advice Materials" which gives advice on teaching students with disability, gifted and talented students, and students with English as an additional language. The "instructional adjustments" and "environment adjustments" sections offer practical strategies teachers can use for creating an inclusive classroom.

Simplifying or Supplementing Existing Materials - TeacherVision.com | Special education needs | Scoop.it
Students with special needs can successfully become part of the regular classroom setting when existing materials are simplified or supplemented for them.
Veronica Choi's insight:

Providing an inclusive learning for students with special needs is not about reducing the content, but about implementing tools and adjustments to give them easier access to the content. Educators should ensure that students with disabilities are given the same educational opportunities as those whithout disabilities.
