Accomodating students with disabilities
means adapting, as appropriate to the needs of an eligible child under this part, the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction—(i) To address the unique needs of the child that result from the child’s disability; and(ii) To ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that the child can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.[§300.39(b)(3)] Thus, special education involves adapting the “content, methodology, or delivery of instruction.” In fact, the special education field can take pride in the knowledge base and expertise it’s developed in the past 30-plus years of individualizing instruction to meet the needs of students with disabilities.
In this case, the IEP must include: Even a child with many needs is to be involved with nondisabled peers to the maximum extent appropriate.
It’s a pleasure to share some of that knowledge with you now.
For example: Jack is an 8th grade student who has learning disabilities in reading and writing.
If the IEP team decides that a child needs a particular modification or accommodation, this information must be included in the IEP.
Supports are also available for those who work with the child, to help them help that child be successful.
