Leveling the Playing Field: Accommodations and Modifications for Students with Disabilities

For many students with disabilities, the key to success in the classroom lies in having appropriate accommodations, and modifications made to instruction and other classroom activities.  Some adaptations are as simple as moving a distractible student to the front of the class or away from the pencil sharpener or window. Other modifications may involve changing the way material is presented or the way that students respond to show they are learning.  In this workshop we will discuss the difference between modifications and accommodations, and will talk about ensuring that necessary accommodations and modifications are part of the students Individualized Education Program.
