Learning and attention issues don’t just create challenges in school. That’s why accommodations also exist outside the classroom.
But instead of providing an equal opportunity to learn, they provide an equal opportunity to participate. You may see them used in driver’s tests, the workplace, summer camps, sport clubs and even at Disney World.
By using an audiobook, she can learn history without her reading issues getting in the way. Accommodations don’t change what your child is expected to know or learn. Your child may use an audiobook in American history, but she’s still expected to learn about events like the Civil War.
And she still must complete all assignments and take exams, just like her peers.
You and the school decide together what accommodations to write into the plan.
