Accommodations for Students with LD
By: National Center for Learning Disabilities (2006)
What are accommodations?

Accommodations are alterations in the way tasks are presented that allow children with learning disabilities to complete the
same assignments as other students. Accommodations do not alter the content of assignments, give students an unfair
advantage or in the case of assessments, change what a test measures. They do make it possible for students with LD to
show what they know without being impeded by their disability.

How does a child receive accommodations?

Once a child has been formally identified with a learning disability, the child or parent may request accommodations for
that child's specific needs. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act states that a child's IEP (Individualized Education
Program) team which both parent and child are a part of \u2013 must decide which accommodations are appropriate for him or
her. Any appropriate accommodations should be written into a student's IEP.

Here are some examples of possible accommodations for an IEP team to consider, broken into six categories:
\ue001Provide on audio tape
\ue001Provide in large print
\ue001Reduce number of items per page or line
\ue001Provide a designated reader
\ue001Present instructions orally
\ue001Allow for verbal responses
\ue001Allow for answers to be dictated to a scribe
\ue001Allow the use of a tape recorder to capture responses
\ue001Permit responses to be given via computer
\ue001Permit answers to be recorded directly into test booklet
\ue001Allow frequent breaks
\ue001Extend allotted time for a test
