Tools to Support the Documentation of Accommodations

The Accommodations at a Glance document is editable and allows you to store the accommodation information of all of your SWD in one place. Click on the picture to access this tool. This is not to be used in place of the IEP or IEP at a Glance. That must still be readily available to you. This allows you to have a "classwide" view of accommodations and plan strategically.

Utilize a customizable strips form to staple to your student's graded assignment or assessment. 

Reminders and Additional Resources

Accommodations are put into place to meet a student's NEED. The IEP team should have an in-depth conversation about what the student's specific need(s) are and what accommodation(s) will best meet that need in the Least Restrictive Environment. The goal is to have targeted accommodations that are directly connected to the need that is being presented.
