CHAPTER FOUR Types of Accommodations

Accommodations are a key component of effective educational programs for students with disabilities. Many students with disabilities need only small changes in the way they are instructed and assessed to participate successfully in general education classes. In this chapter, accommodations are organized into four categories:

  • Presentation—how students receive information,
  • Responding—how students show what they know,
  • Setting—how the environment is made accessible for instruction and assessment, and
  • Scheduling—how time demands and schedules may be adjusted.
