No More Accommodations

About this video


“Accommodation” refers to adaptations or modifications of educational content to meet the needs of specific learners. Educators portray enthusiasm for accommodations but many educators privately express frustration or call accommodations unfair. Students often only seek accommodation services when they are in danger of academic failure. By then there is no time to apply for the accommodation and activate it with the required notice (typically 2-weeks). Instead of waiting for an inopportune time, educators must design lessons to meet common accommodations by default. This presentation provides details on practical ways that educators can use accommodations to anticipate student needs, and build those needs into the learning materials from the start.
