This webinar is indeed helpful to all educators especially since diversity is a common setting throughout classrooms. These adaptations strategies & tools should be part of the school safety kit because all educators can benefit since all interact with differently able scholars. It should be a collective effort taught to scholars not just by one to implement. It would also build a stronger school culture.
