I asked you to share what accommodations and modifications your children receive in school, and reader Laura recently submitted these, under the title "We modify the world for our son":
"My son's diagnosis is PDD-NOS. The school provides a one on one aid at all times. He is met at the entrance to the school by this aid. He is given preferential seating in the classroom. He has 'fidgets' at his desk. He has a communication book that his aid carries at all times, and several visual schedules throughout the school. He is given preferential treatment in the cafeteria. He has one on one music time, and p.e. time. He sees the school district speech therapist, who consults with all of his education team on meeting his communication needs."
If your child receives accommodations and modifications in school, please describe them on the Readers Respond page for that topic. It's always helpful to know what other kids are getting so you know what you can ask for.
