Developing adaptations and accommodations for a child with special needs is a continuous process that involves each child's collaborative team.
The first step is to assess the child's abilities and the environment where the child will be spending time.
Once the goals and objectives are identified and expectations for the child's participation in that environment are established, the team selects or creates adaptations and accommodations that address those needs.
The purpose of an adaptation is to assist children in compensating for intellectual, physical or behavioral challenges.
They allow children to use their current skills while promoting the acquisition of new skills.
