You and the school decide together what accommodations to write into the plan.
By law, this must also cover any accommodations on state tests.
To exercise this right, you must ask the school to evaluate your child.
Under federal law, kids with disabilities have the right to equal access to learning.
This means accommodations for their disabilities, which can include learning and attention issues.
Kids with learning and attention issues often face barriers to learning.
For instance, if your child has ADHD, she may not be able to sit still long enough to do math problems.
The accommodation simply helps her work around her challenges.
