Accomodating children with dyslexia
(Learn about the difference between IEPs and 504 plans.) Just because an IEP or a 504 plan lists accommodations, however, doesn’t mean they’re always followed in the classroom. And it’s important to talk with your child about how the accommodations are working.
For instance, for the child who can’t sit still to do math, an accommodation may be frequent breaks.
The accommodation simply helps her work around her challenges.
This is what makes accommodations different from modifications.
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.To exercise this right, you must ask the school to evaluate your child.
