SpED Talk #2 — Identifying Students for Accommodations (before they slip through the cracks)
Based on a true story!
Nichelle’s problems began in kindergarten—the words just didn’t look right. Each year was the same as the last until her freshman year. Nichelle’s reading problems didn’t get better, so her teacher’s began to modify. She knew she was being given “easier” materials than her friends. And she didn’t like it. So Nichelle spoke up.
Find out what it took to help Nichelle get back to grade level and learn about a way to identify your “Nichelles” early.
