What accommodations are commonly used for students with disabilities?

Page 3: Commonly Used Accommodations

Instructional and testing accommodations are generally grouped into four categories: presentation, response, timing and scheduling, and setting. In each of these, the accommodation is designed to help the student to demonstrate his or her knowledge. Keep in mind, though, that accommodations should be individualized and not based on a specific disability category. Additionally, some of these accommodations can be bundled—used in combination—depending on a student’s individual needs. The following pages include information about each of these categories, and examples of how each might benefit the students who use them.
