On Accommodations: Dispatches from Headstrong Nation

Accommodations are one of the most important–and frequent–topics of discussion in my office. For students with learning differences, accommodations are a key part of their academic program: they’re critical for helping these students  communicate what they know. There are lots of sites out there that discuss accommodations, and I hope to feature and link to as many as possible from this space.

Today’s featured site is Headstrong Nation, a California-based nonprofit that focuses on awareness and empowerment for adults and kids who learn differently. The nonprofit’s site is bold, a little brash, and jam-packed with information, and I definitely recommend taking a spin. Most importantly, check out the eye-catching, plain-spoken Accommodations section here. It’s a great introduction to what accommodations are and how kids and adults can make best use of them at school and at home. Definitely worth a look–enjoy!
