Accommodations and Modifications

I need assistance in explaining Accomodations and Modifiactions.

Based on the NICHCY article Supports, Modifications, and Accommodations for Students (, what is the difference between accommodations and modifications? In the student scenario below, write a detailed plan for individualized accommodations and modifications you would provide based on Robert's needs. Also, discuss the role of the collaborative, multi-disciplinary team in supporting Robert's needs.

He currently reads at the 5th grade reading level and has difficulty with reading comprehension. Robert also experiences challenges in writing, particularly putting his ideas down on paper. He also has challenges with spelling and grammar. He is a bright student and seems interested in the class, but you are concerned that the fast pace of instruction in general education might be a challenge for him without some strong accommodations and modifications in place to ensure he has access to learning.
