What is the difference between remediation, accommodation and modification?
Remediation refers to direct instruction in the student’s identified areas of weakness. This instruction is usually delivered in a pullout programme. It should be intensive, direct, multisensory and systematic. A modification refers to changes made to the curriculum expectations. These may include: • Selecting expectations from a different grade level • Reducing the number of curriculum expectations to be mastered • Rewriting grade-level expectations • Writing alternative expectations An accommodation refers to any assistance that enables the student to access the grade-appropriate curriculum. The curriculum expectations are not changed.
