Rachel:  Could I get some clarification on general education teachers responsibility in regards to accommodating and modifying assignments and tests? There is a belief that it is all the special education teachers responsibility, and that the general education teacher does not need to create/provide the accommodations.

The plan should specify when and where each support will be provided. If they have written, for example, “support with writing” will only be provided in Resource Room, then the gen ed teacher might be off the hook.

So, you may find some ways of strengthening the IEP.

Don’t forget to include training for the gen ed teacher in your child’s specific disability. (With release time — i.e. sub coverage during the training.)
