The Exceptional Child team is excited to announce the addition of the new Accommodations & Modifications course to the Exceptional Child course library. The course will help school staff members better understand the effective use of accommodations and modifications and how these methods support the learning of students with special needs. We’ll identify the key differences between accommodations and modifications, discuss which children receive these services and when and where they must be provided, and cover numerous best practices. The course also highlights the importance of collaboration among general education teachers and special education staff.
The course authors have a combined thirty-plus years of experience in the special education field. Nicole Barrion, M.Ed., Special Education, has served in the educational field for over eighteen years, supporting children, teachers, and administrators through engaging and differentiated techniques and has helped develop and employ strategic plans to propel schools in creating effective inclusive environments. Allison MacMahon, M.Ed., Special Education, has been a special education teacher for over sixteen years and has worked with students with emotional and learning disabilities. For the past six years she has supported students and teachers as an instructional specialist in Alexandria City Public Schools (VA).
