The Science Laboratory

The science laboratory can be especially overwhelming for students with learning disabilities. Unfamiliar equipment, exact measurement and multi-step procedures may demand precisely those skills that are hardest for students with learning disabilities to acquire. Helpful hints:

  1. Ask for an individual orientation to the laboratory and equipment to minimize anxiety.
  2. Label equipment, tools and materials, whenever possible.
  3. Create cue cards or labels designating the steps of a procedure to expedite the mastering of a sequence.
  4. Use specialized adaptive equipment to help with exact measurements, if necessary.
