Some adaptations are as simple as moving a distractible student to the front of the class or away from the pencil sharpener or the window.
Other modifications may involve changing the way that material is presented or the way that students respond to show their learning.
Modifications – both to your physical classroom and to your teaching style – are often necessary to accommodate them.
Modifications mean change, while making accommodations means adapting to those things you can't change – existing circumstances.
An accommodation is a device, material, or support process that will enable a student to accomplish a task more efficiently.
Modification refers to changes to the instructional outcomes; a change or decrease in the course content or outcome.
Many children with ADHD also have comorbid learning disorders.
