Instructional Accommodations for a Student with a Disability

2015-2016 Colorado Instructional Accommodations Manual: A Guide to the Selection and Implementation of Accommodations for Students with Disability

The Colorado Instructional Accommodations Manual provides guidance for IEP Teams and educators, presents a Five-Step Process for the selection and implementation of instructional accommodations. It offers tools and suggestions for using technology for students with a disability to best access instructional context.

The manual will be updated to ensure that newer technologies may be added to exampled accommodations.
