Breaking Down Learning into Smaller Targets: The Micro-Skill Differentiation Approach

Updated: Mar 11

Micro-Skill Differentiation is an approach to teaching and learning that involves breaking down larger skills or concepts into smaller, more manageable targets. This approach is especially important in special education, where individualized instruction is crucial for supporting student learning and development.

In special education, it is essential to provide instruction that meets the unique needs of each student. This can be challenging, as students with disabilities may have a wide range of abilities and learning styles. Micro-Skill Differentiation offers a way to tailor instruction to meet these individual needs by providing a clear and structured path toward mastery based on each student's unique abilities and needs.
