Strategies for individual work
Allowing time for individual support
Modify writing tasks: modify vocabulary, less writing and more matching
Emphasis on effort as opposed to spelling everything correctly.
Isolation (if desired by student)
Strategical placement of students (i.e. sitting them next to a model student)
Self regulation strategies (i.e. timers, checklists).
Dragon Speech to Text, or a scribe.
Personal and modified versions of tests and worksheets such as: -fill in the blanks , matching
Provide resources (i.e. glossaries, terminology)
Extra time to complete assignments
