Tools for students with SEND - Microsoft in Education


Published on

In any given class of students, there may well be some learners with individual difficulties - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, or SEND. They may be physical impairments related to vision, problems with hearing, or other mental struggles that make it harder for them to understand and engage with different communication mediums or particular aspects of day to day classroom activities. Not only can this be troubling for the individuals affected, but for the teacher whose responsibility it is to make sure all of their students have equal opportunities to develop their learning, keeping the class pace as a whole can become more challenging.
