  8. Adapting and modifiying How to adapt and modify

  9. What is adaptation? • Adaptation is where work which relies on good vision isbeing given to a class as part of a lesson (whether on the board, on paper, in a book) is altered to meet the needs of a child who has a visual impairment

  10. Not everything is adaptable-so we modify

  11. What is modification? • Modification is where work which relies on good vision isbeing given to a class as part of a lesson (whether on the board, on paper, in a book) and has been altered either in look and sometimes content to meet the individual needs of the child or young person in the class who has a visual impairment

  12. Activity 2 Take turns to put on the simi-specs and look at side 1 of the sample you have been given Write down how you think you could adapt/modify it to make it more accessible for the child with whom you work When we say- turn your example over DON’T CHEAT

  19. The Decision Tree • With your partner look at a copy of the decision tree • Go through the actions and write down any questions or ideas you may have

  20. Practical An opportunity to adapt or modify a resource

  21. Practical • Look at the worksheet you have been given • Use the resources we have given you to adapt or modify the samples • Work in pairs and think about what you feel the learning outcome should be

  22. Exam Concessions • Early opening • Modified Large Print • Additional Time (up to 100%) • Supervised rest breaks • Discrete location • Large print Papers (A4-A3 enlargements) • Modified large print (A4 18 point simplified) • Braille and tactile enhancement • Scribes • A reader • The practical assistant. •

  23. Access arrangements –Technology/equipment • Use of brailler • Use of CCTV • Colour naming • Coloured overlays • Computer reader • Exams on coloured/enlarged paper • Word-processors • Magnification tools

  24. Any questions? Remember the key points: • Pre-planning-always try to be a week ahead • Have clear objectives for your work-know what the teacher wants the CYP to learn • Always consider the best use of tools and time-1 hour on a map which will be used for 5 minutes-is there a better way?

  25. If in doubt-ask you advisory teacher
