Children who have a learning disability and may be struggling to cartoon of a school house with an Americana flag on the left.reach their full potential in the classroom could require an accommodation or a modification to help them thrive. An accommodation is a change in the way that a student takes in information or communicates their knowledge back to the teacher, but it does not alter the standards or expectations for the subjects or tests. A modification is a change in the delivery, content, and instructional level of information for a student. It is a change in what the student is taught and what is expected of them on assessments of learning. These kinds of adjustments are tailored to each student’s strengths and areas of difficulty to provide them with the most beneficial learning environment.
