Step 9: Summarize and practice inclusive learning plan design

Steps 1-8, while linear, are in fact complementary to each other. A coherent plan requires following each step and referencing decisions made in each previous step. To practice inclusive learning plan design, consider the unique qualities and abilities of each student in your class and offer everyone in your class alternative and accessible formats—formats such as digitally accessible worksheets that align with the printed worksheets experience, accessible media such as video captions and descriptive audio options, and PDFs that a screen reader can access. If a specialized alternative format is produced, such as an audio file, try to include that format in your list of options for all your students to access. While one student may have a formal accommodation for a specific format another student without a formal accommodation may also benefit from that format.
