Some students benefit from modified worksheets that have diversified displays and content to meet their needs. Consider building in scaffolds to the worksheet for greater independence as well.

Example:

Worksheets can be modified by:

  • Reducing the number of problems
  • Space out problems in a structured way – such as in boxes
  • Spread problems over two pages instead of one
  • Limit visual stimuli –such as unneeded picture or words
  • Change skill level – i.e., instead of three digit multiplication provide two digit
  • Place a model at the top of the worksheet
  • Embed checklist into directions
