In this packet, you will receive a checklist of more than
175 special education and autism accommodations,
modifications and adaptations to use in any classroom.
The special education categories include: Textbooks and
Materials, Setting/Environment, Presentation of Content,
Tests and Grades, and Student Response. In addition, you
will receive nine types of special education adaptations
with real life classroom examples.
The special education checklists are broken down into
broad (and overlapping) categories. This is done
intentionally. Many special education problem solving
teams want a checklist for specific diagnoses or targeted
special education disabilities. However, I strongly
caution against using these targeted special education
checklists. All students are unique, regardless of their
identified learning special education needs. One size
does not fit all. It is recommended to base all special
education decisions on objective data, sound
interventions and progress monitoring. An individualized
special education problem-solving process is critical in
successfully meeting the needs of all students.

everyone gets what he needs.” - Richard Lavoie
