Abstract
Adjust teaching practices to ensure student learning in the classroom is a part of everyday life as a teacher. Having students with disabilities in the classroom might make this a little more challenging. Private schools that do not specialize in these areas may not have the financial or physical means to provide enough support to teachers forcing them to do research on their own. The purpose of this project was to create a user friendly website that has information about learning disabilities, disability symptoms and teaching strategies. The website was created using Weebly, a web-based website builder. A usability study was conducted using 3 participants in the first round and 3 participants in the second round. Revisions to the website were made after the first round of feedback was analyzed and again after the second round. Revisions include adding a button that links users to a glossary page and a section on testing and diagnosing for each disability covered.
