Summary

This briefing paper discusses academic accommodations for high school students with disabilities. It begins by reviewing provisions under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that require Individualized Education Programs to include a statement of the program modifications or supports that will be provided for the child to enable the child to advance appropriately, be involved and progress in the general curriculum, participate in extracurricular activities, and to be educated and participate with his or her typical peers. A chart provides examples of instructional accommodations for material and curriculum and for teaching methods. Different accommodations used for assessments are also listed, including changes to testing setting, timing, scheduling, presentation, and response requirements. Definitional considerations relating to accommodations and modifications are also discussed. Research findings on accommodations used in 12 states are reported and indicate accommodations are used by greater percentages of students at the elementary school level than at either the middle school or high school levels. A chart illustrates state-reported levels of use of accommodations for the 12 states. (Contains 13 references.) (CR)
