These are a couple of other great links to creating the most optimal learning environment for students with a variety of needs. Linda Hodgdon is a SLP who has done some fantastic work with visuals supports to increase communication and social understanding for students who are on the Autism spectrum. This link is to a blog, and they have shared some of her points from a lecture. Have a look.


I also came across this blog about Assistive Technology & much more! There is a wealth of  information on this site. "Assistive technology is any kind of technology and/or tool that can be used to enhance the functional independence of a person with a disability. Often, for people with disabilities, accomplishing daily tasks such as communicating with others, going to school or work, or participating in activities can be a challenge. Assistive Technology (AT) devices are tools to help overcome those challenges and enable people living with disabilities to enhance and have access to a quality of life, that may otherwise not be known, and lead more independent lives."
