Accomodations I could make for Low IQ students in my classroom would be visual pictures to help them understand what they need to do.

Accomodations I could make for LD students in my classroom would be to provide lower level reading materials for them and allow extra time to complete tasks.

Accomodations I could make for Developmental Disability students in my classroom for example an Autism student would be to provide a detailed visual schedule and allow choice times between activities for them to relax and tune out the rest of the class for a short time. Their brains are on overload so much of the time that allowing them some down time has proven to be effective for me with the Autism students I work with currently.
