'Farming Fun for Everyone! A Workshop Focused on Modifications for Students with Special Needs. '

I work for the Helen Keller School of Alabama, a part of the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind. We are building a 30-acre working farm. My presentation will focus on teaching students with special needs. I will included tips and strategies on creating modifications specific for deaf/hard of hearing, blind/low vision and students with multiple disabilities. My activities are not modified lesson plans, but actual hands on activities that address transition standards and encourage development across all domains. We have a greenhouse and raise chickens. I have taught every grade level K-12 in special education.

Workshop Session (all workshops will be 60 minutes)
