In this assignment you will demonstrate your understanding of the learning objective: Identify universal learning characteristics of students with mild to moderate disabilities. Additionally, completion of this assignment represents an introduction to Course Learning Outcome 3 and MASE Program Learning Outcomes 1, 2 and 6.
Although every child is unique, those with similar categorized disabilities, have universal learning and behavior characteristics.

Create a graphic organizer using Popplet (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or Microsoft Word (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to demonstrate universal learning and behavior characteristics and strategies for a disability of your choice. Use table 2.1 “Generally Accepted Categorical Descriptions of Students with Mild Disabilities” and table 2.2 “Summary of Instructional Strategies by Functional Domains” to identify a population and their characteristics. Here is a model to follow:
