Adaptation Station

The Adaptation Station is a safe place area with bean bag and relaxation materialscompilation big mack communicatorof classroom materials, instructional strategies, and assistive technology devices that are recommended for use with young children with disabilities to access the curriculum. We thank our teachers and staff for sharing their expertise and ideas to make this compilation of ideas so rich.

These categories of adaptations correspond to the Pre-K SPED Assistive Technology Implementation Plan (ATIP) but can be used for any formal or informal instruction planning. In fact, we encourage each visitor to this page to browse awhile (look through each of the areas below) tovfind some new ideas or write to Deanna Decario at ddecario@dadeschools.net with tried and true ideas to that we can add.
