General ideas for making labs accessible

1) Keep materials in place by using a pan or egg carton or sectioned tray.

2) When working with partners, encourage sighted partners to use descriptive words.

3) Whenever possible, allow student to collect own information with modified tools, a braille writer or braille device, draftsman board or tactile paper for graphics.

4) Allow student to be in charge of timers or calculations using these applications on his/her braille device

5) Label containers, cabinets, and shelves with high-contrast, large print or braille whenever possible
6) Identify hazardous chemicals with a piece of sandpaper or sticker by the label
7) Have measuring devices and chemicals close together so the student doesn’t have to walk across the room with the chemicals
