Assistive supports – specialised equipment, technologies, medical or physical devices, and other resources that help students

Remediation – strategies that teach students specific, usually prerequisite, skills to help them master broader curricular, scope and sequence, or benchmark objectives

Accommodations – change conditions that support student learning – such as the classroom setting or setup, how and where instruction is presented, the length of instruction, the length or time frame for assignments, or how students are expected to respond to questions or complete assignments.

Modifications – involve changes in curricular content – it’s scope, depth, breadth, or complexity

If target students don’t respond more significant or complex approaches from the next areas may be needed:

Strategic interventions – focus on changing students’ specific academic skills or strategies, their motivation, or their ability to comprehend, apply, analyse, synthesise, or evaluate academic content and material. Strategic interventions typically involve multidisciplinary assessments.

Compensatory Approaches– help students to compensate for disabilities that cannot be changed or overcome
