Reasonable Accommodations Explained

Reasonable Accommodations:

Reasonable accommodations are reasonable modifications of the learning environment that eliminate, as much as possible, physical or instructional barriers to learning encountered by the student with a disability. Accommodations are individualized and dependent on the nature of the specific disability or disabilities. A student’s physical accessibility to the classroom as well as the student’s ability to fully participate in all course activities are both considered in providing reasonable accommodations.


Unreasonable Accommodations:

Unreasonable accommodations alter requirements that are essential to the program of instruction or to meet licensing prerequisites, cause fundamental alteration in the nature of the program, impose undue financial or administrative burden, or pose an appreciable threat to personal or public safety.
