What are accommodations in a lesson plan?
Accommodations allow a student to complete the same tasks as their non-LD peers but with some variation in time, format, setting, and/or presentation.

What are the four types of accommodation?
Accommodations are typically grouped into four categories: presentation, response, setting, and timing and scheduling.

An accommodation is a change that helps a student overcome or work around the disability.
