Systemic Disabilities

Some Considerations

  • Students affected by systemic disabilities differ from those with other disabilities because systemic disabilities are often unstable. A few examples of a systemic disability are lupus, MS, and Crohn's disease. These may cause a person's condition to vary; therefore, the need for and type of reasonable accommodations may also change.

Instructional Strategies

  • Systematic disabilities often require instructional strategies similar to those listed for other disability conditions. The use of such strategies will depend on how the disability is manifested.
