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.


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
