what are accommodations
What are Accommodations?
  • Accommodations are changes to materials or procedures that provide effective and equitable access to grade-level curriculum during instruction and testing.
  • Accommodations:
    • do not substantially alter the content or performance criteria of assignments and assessments.
    • should not replace the teaching of subject-specific knowledge and skills.
    • are intended to enable students with special needs, disabilities, or who are learning English to participate meaningfully in grade-level instruction.
    • are not intended to provide a student with an advantage over other students.

Remember accommodations must be:

  • individualized.
  • routinely used during instruction and testing.
      • Some accommodations may be appropriate for instructional use, but not appropriate or allowed for use on a state assessment.
  • discussed with students to gain their involvement in discussions when appropriate.
  • Documented.

      • Addition charts may be used.
      • A list of words for the numbers 0-9 and the multiples of 10 up to 100 may be used.
      • Pictorial models of real or play money, clocks, base-ten blocks, various types of counters, and algebra tiles may be used.

how specific does an ard committee need to be when documenting supplemental aids
How specific does an ARD committee need to be when documenting supplemental aids?
  • The IEP documentation should connect the supplemental aids that a student uses to his/her present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP).
    • How do the supplemental aids ensure access to a free appropriate public education (FAPE)?
    • Why does the student need these supplemental aids?
  • It would be a good idea to specifically document (or attach copies of) what the student currently uses, but include a statement that allows for additional supplemental aids that a student may need as new skills are introduced.
