The purpose of the Accommodations Spread the Word document is to help define and increase the capacity of understanding about accommodations as they relate to students with disabilities in Indiana. This document serves as guidance for IEP teams, administrators, and ALL educators and practitioners as they determine the need for, plan, and implement accommodations and/or modifications for students with disabilities who require an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

The Accommodations vs. Modifications Comparison Chart (9.10.2018) can be used to build capacity regarding the differences between accommodations and modifications. The chart can also be used to evaluate the type of accessibility supports that students are provided or may be provided during instructions and assessments to help promote equal access to grade level content.

In light of concerns expressed by the educational community, the Indiana Resource Network (IRN) developed a document sharing information regarding accommodations and assessments.
