Accommodations are defined as a support or services that are provided to help a student fully access the general education curriculum or subject matter. An accommodation does not change the content of what is being taught.

Modification is defined as a change to the general education curriculum or other material being taught. The teaching strategies are modified so the material is presented differently and/or the expectations of what the student will master are changed. The following are examples of modifications:

  1. The student is taught something different from the rest of the class
  2. The student is taught the same information, but at a different level of complexity
  3. The student has a reduced assignment (for example, has fewer questions to answer)
  4. Use a lower level reading text book, which covers similar subject content
  5. Expectations of what the student learns will vary based on modifications agreed to on the IEP (Individualized Education Program)
