Accommodations for Student with Disabilities: A Resource Document

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act require students with disabilities have equal access to an education. This includes accommodations that are needed for students with disabilities to learn and participate in academic, extracurricular, and nonacademic activities. Accommodations are designed to enable children with disabilities to be educated with their nondisabled peers to the maximum extent appropriate. All students with an IEP or 504 plan are entitled to accommodations.
