Accommodation for One Benefits Others

An example of when an accommodation for one benefits others.

Kayla was in a drama camp this summer. On the first day she came home with her script. I immediately realized this wouldn't work very well for Kayla. Although her part was highlighted, I knew it was going to be difficult for her to follow along.

The next day I asked if it was possible to enlarge the script. Because of Kayla's convergence insufficiency she has trouble reading such small print and small spacing; her eyes don't track as well and she tends to skip lines if not big enough.

The instructor said she noticed her doing that (skipping lines) the day before. Then she said this was a great idea for not only Kayla, but for other younger kids in the camp who are just learning to read. By the end of that day she had their parts enlarged, and by the next day the whole script was enlarged for the whole cast.

As you can see by the picture on the right that script was so much easier to read and follow along with the play.

I'm with Kayla. The one on the right would be easier for me or anyone, probably. XO

wow , you made a difference!! like you said, in helping Kayla, you helped the other kids in the drama production and future kids too. Plus, the drama instructor!! way to go Michelle. And it worked because Kayla remembered her lines and acting with a little improv added :} love mom
