Understanding and Using Accommodations and Modifications to Promote Student Access to Grade Level Standards

It is necessary for students to be provided appropriate adaptations in order access and benefit from instruction in an environment that values equity. Understanding the differences between and determining the provision of accommodations and modifications is often misunderstood which results in lowered student academic outcomes, increased misbehavior, and a lack of engagement. This training addresses the implementation of adaptations related to both instruction and assessment across all educational environments.


  • Understand the legal requirement and implications of adaptations to a student’s program.
  • Identify a student’s individualized accommodations, how to implement them with fidelity, and procedures for documenting the implementation.
  • Discuss key elements for effective collaboration and implementation school-wide by both general and special education personnel.
  • Understand how to grade a student’s work when adaptions are utilized per the IEP.
