Use this list as a starting point in creating an IEP or a 504 Plan.
A job accommodation is an adjustment to a job or work environment that makes it possible for an individual with a disability to perform their job duties.
Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, there are three areas in which reasonable accommodations may be needed: The only legal limitation on an employer's obligation to provide reasonable accommodation is that the changes or modifications may not cause "undue hardship" to the employer. Included in the IEP are annual goals and short-term objectives.Students protected under Section 504 can also have a written plan."Undue hardship" means significant difficulty, including accommodations that are overly extensive or disruptive, or which could impact the actual running of a business. Most twice-exceptional students have little difficulty grasping concepts or generating ideas.Teachers, parents, and perhaps other team members come together to create and later update this written plan.It documents the student’s disability along with the educational program designed to meet the student’s unique needs.The contents of 504 plans tend to vary more than IEPs because there are no legal requirements for what the plan should contain or how often it should be updated.In general, a 504 plan documents the student’s disability and describes what will be done to accommodate it.
