This law says that all students must have access to the curriculum of their educational peers. One major way our students have is through their amplification. If they do not understand how it works and can not do basic troubleshooting, they will not have when something malfunctions. A basic requirement to manage and troubleshoot equipment is to know the names of the parts and what they do. This product provides 8 activities for students to learn the parts and functions of their DM systems in fun, brain-based ways.
