It’s a way to make sure your child’s learning and attention issues don’t get in the way of showing what he knows.
The CDE recommends that sponsors read this MB in its entirety.
Accommodations are designed to give kids ways to learn and demonstrate knowledge of the same material as other kids their age. Accommodations don’t lower the expectations for what kids learn.
For example, if your child has trouble with writing, the teacher might let him give answers to a test verbally. They don’t change what kids are taught or tested on.
This MB provides clarification to child nutrition program (CNP) sponsors on the process, requirements, options, and resources for accommodating children, with and without disabilities, who have special dietary needs.
