Accommodations for Students with Disabilities: Removing Barriers To Learning.
Byrnes, MaryAnn
NASSP Bulletin, v84 n613 p21-27 Feb 2000
An accommodation is an adjustment to an activity or setting that equalizes a learning situation for persons with disabilities. Accommodations are required under the anti-discriminatory 1973 Rehabilitation Act (Section 504) and the Americans with Disabilities Act. An accommodation should not alter an assignment's essential purpose. (MLH)
