This webinar will provide participants with a working understanding of accommodations versus modifications, as well as when to implement either and for whom. The setting of focus will be Tier 1, either in the General Education classroom or with specialists. Through the use of situational examples, problem-solving and discussion, you will learn how to incorporate accommodation and modification supports in your classroom. You will be better able to recognize when such supports are needed, have a toolbox of practical ideas to choose from and feel more comfortable implementing these new tools into your everyday practice.

  2. To leave with a toolbox of practical accommodation and modification supports that you can implement in your classroom.
