Chalk Talk: Educational Jargon: Accommodations and Modifications
Accommodations and modifications are both implemented to assist students who struggle or learn differently. Accommodations are smaller—they are supports that are added to help students learn content and accomplish tasks. Even when accommodations are added, the instructional delivery and work that the struggling students complete is generally the same as what the other students receive. Accommodations may include the use of assistive technologies and the incorporation of extra time for taking a test. Students with special needs may need more drastic changes, or modifications, involving instruction, content, and outcomes. Examples may include providing a struggling reader with a lower level book or giving a student an alternative type of assessment that better matches his/her learning style. Classroom and special education teachers should work together to determine what accommodations and modifications are necessary for specific students.
