white boards and making the classroom more accessible 

In school I struggled in various areas one of which was seeing the board this was because given the size of my wheelchair my desk was often at back of the room making it difficult to see the board i have written more in detail about my vision issues here

But today I want to focus on the solution that we came up with that worked for me.

The answer came in the form of bringing the next on the board closer to me at my desk to this we used a small white board propped up on computer stand and then my educational assistant would simply copy the information making it easier for me to see

If you think this idea would be useful in you or your child’s life below are some white boards I recommend (affiliate)

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

One Response to white boards and making the classroom more accessible

    At my school all accessible seating is in the front of the room and most of the classrooms use white boards instead of blackboards. Many of the teachers at my school are also disabled so I think maybe that is part of why the classrooms are more accessible i.e the school is more aware.
