Changes that the teacher can make to help your child learn more effectively. For example: they may let your child sit at the front of the classroom, wear headphones when doing their own work, take more time for tests, or give them certain types of learning aids. Accommodations are NOT changes to the education content itself. They can be used for class instruction, homework and testing, including college entrance tests like the SAT or ACT. They can be written into an IEP or a 504 plan. Adults can also get accommodations in the workplace. More about accommodations, or about testing accommodations for high schoolers.
