The purpose of special education is to prepare students with disabilities for further education, employment, and independent living.

Accommodations are intended to help your child work around the disability and demonstrate what he has learned.

With accommodations, your child should be able to complete the same assignment or test as other students, without altering what the assignment or test measures. Your child is expected to learn the same information.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about accommodations in the classroom, on tests, in advance placement courses, and in after school programs.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

New! Easier Access to Test Accommodations on College Boards

College Board Simplifies Request Process for Test Accommodations beginning January 1, 2017.

Most students who are using testing accommodations at their school through an IEP or 504 Plan will have those same accommodations automatically approved.


Accommodations & After School Programs

My 8-year-old son has been kicked out of an after-school program run in his elementary school building. Now what?

Learn about accommodations for kids who do not qualify for special education services, but still need help to attend school or participate in after school activities.


Can the School Deny Accommodations in an AP Course?

If your child has an IEP or Section 504 plan, the school needs to provide the accommodations in the plan - even in AP classes.

OCR says the practice of denying, on the basis of disability, a qualified student with a disability the opportunity to participate in an accelerated program violates both Section 504 and Title II.


Accommodations in the Classroom and on Tests

Learn about accommodations in the classroom and on state proficiency tests, and requirements about alternate assessments.
