Special Accommodations and IEP
My Learning Oasis - Last Updated on 16th March, 2021 (Tuesday)
The Individual Education Plan (IEP) is a carefully prepared document, by professionals and concerned adults, that outlines a student’s needs, strengths, weaknesses, and any form of assistance (termed accommodations) that are to be made to facilitate effective learning by the student.
If the student is a transfer student and already has an IEP in his/her previous institution, in the best interest of the student, this ought to be given to My Learning Oasis Elite Private School so that proper accommodations can be made. At My Learning Oasis Elite Private School, we welcome such initiatives because here, facilitating students’ learning is our highest priority.
If a student does not have an IEP and the professionals and parents think that one is needed, we will work with the parents and the student’s doctor to prepare one. Alternatively, the parents may choose to work with the student’s doctor to prepare one. In that case, we recommend that the parents share it with us so that My Learning Oasis Elite Private School can make the student realize his/her true ability.
Only Some students are able, with accommodations, to be part of a regular course curriculum and to demonstrate independent learning. These accommodations allow access to the course without any dilution of the knowledge and skills the student is expected to demonstrate.
The three types of accommodations that are going to be used are:
i) Instructional accommodations - changes in teaching/learning strategies facilitated by different styles of presentation; methods of the organization; the use of technology and multimedia, including recorded lessons so students can play and replay at his/her own convenience.
ii) Environmental accommodations - Certain classroom settings and preferential seating may benefit these students.
ii) Assessment: assessment procedures that enable the student to demonstrate his or her learning, such as Multiple Intelligence Theory, giving more time to complete tasks (see page 29 of the IEP Resource Guide, 2004, for more examples).
For students who require accommodations for only the mathematics courses, the assessment and evaluation of their achievement will be based on the appropriate course curriculum expectations and the achievement levels outlined in this document. The IEP box on the students’ Provincial Report Cards will not be checked, and no information on the provision of accommodations will be included.
