So what really is the difference between an ACCOMMODATION and a MODIFICATION? Aren't they the same thing?
No. Accommodations and modifications are different from each other!
An accommodation is a way to help students learn the same material or take the same test in a different way.
A modification is a change to what the student is expected to learn.

Accommodation and modification are two different things. In addition to what you have explained, accommodation is all about adjustments. When we say we will accommodate a student, we do things that would make things easier and way more convenient for the student. Modification, on the other hand, is changing something as a whole. It means that you will make major changes in order to create a totally different thing. Both are important when it comes to teaching students. We first have to go easy on them by accommodating them and then later on use modification once they have mastered the lessons taught to them.
Thank you for this! Accommodations should support students independent access to the curriculum. Accommodations are essentially a way to differentiate curriculum and instruction for all students. Modifications fundamentally change the curriculum. Modifications are ONLY for those students who require a specially designed instruction that modifies -or fundamentally-changes the curriculum.
