In this video, Hestelle Viljoen discusses how to differentiate the curriculum in order to make it more accessible, specifically with regard to teaching methodologies and assessment methods. She describes how visually-impaired learners may require more time and different kinds of learning materials (such as braille or audio content) in order to engage with the curriculum. She discusses how to adapt visual content (such as graphs or images) to make it more accessible, through a variety of methods, with specific examples. She also discusses the 'reasonable accommodations' during assessment provided by South African law for learners, which can include assistive devices, different physical accommodations or provision of different stationery or tools.
