Accommodating students with special needs
I’m not sure why some teachers believe that differentiating instruction to help a child learn is somehow “unfair” to other kids who don’t need that particular assistance.

Information regarding the provision of disability-related accommodations is available at the OAE website: Faculty members should not seek to make arrangements on their own to accommodate student disabilities.
If a student approaches you for a disability-related accommodation, please refer the student to the OAE.
