Increasing accessibility

For students with motor impairments severe enough that they cannot hold or turn pages of books, hold or manipulate a pencil or type on a typical keyboard, they will require alternative access to the materials of the classroom. Some classroom resources and learning activities may also require some rethinking in order to make them not only accessible but also engaging for students with significant disabilities.
