Why is it important to always consider modifications and accommodations in lesson planning?
Accommodations and modifications are an important part of planning the educational program for your child. Many students with a disability may only need small changes to the way they are taught and tested. Accommodations help students work around limitations related to their disability.
Why is it most important to provide accommodations to students who need them?
Whether for instruction or testing, accommodations provide students with opportunities to achieve the same outcomes and to obtain the same benefits as students without disabilities. By addressing barriers, accommodations create better access to learning opportunities for students with disabilities.
What is the importance of modification?
If a student cannot achieve success at the targeted level, using modifications to make the material more manageable for the student is an important part of teaching. Modifications allow students to learn at their present level rather than failing to comprehend information above their understanding.
How do modifications help students?
Usually a modification means a change in what is being taught to or expected from the student. Making an assignment easier so the student is not doing the same level of work as other students is an example of a modification. An accommodation is a change that helps a student overcome or work around the disability.
What are the four accommodation categories?
Accommodations are typically grouped into four categories: presentation, response, setting, and timing and scheduling.
What is difference between accommodation and modification?
An accommodation changes how a student learns the material. A modification changes what a student is taught or expected to learn. Accommodations can help kids learn the same material as their peers. This allows them to meet the same expectations.
