Abstract: After working their way through this module, scholars will be able to discuss types of environmental adaptations including accessibility, classroom considerations, and equipment; create adaptations for toys (low tech and high tech) and use already adapted toys; recognize low tech and high tech adaptations; adapt instruction; and implement strategies to promote positive social environments. Some strategies presented in this module are adopted from the National Lekotek Center found at http://www.lekotek.org/.
