is adaptations = modifications?



My daughter only has accommodations in her IEP and services, no modifications, but school wrote "she attends general education class with adaptations to the curriculum" in a document to be used for an evaluation. I'm not aware of any modifications provided or that there are modifications to Gen Ed curriculum. This is the first time I see the word adaptations in any of my daughter's documents. I thought adaptation = modification. Can someone confirm? If adaptation = modification, then school is inaccurate. They have been wanting to remove her from Gen Ed. My daughter is given the same tasks/assignments/homework as the rest of the class. She has pull outs for math/reading support.

I would ask for clarification from the school. "Adaptations" is not a term defined by IDEA.

I didn’t know that. Good to have terms defined by IDEA for clarity and parental understanding. Thanks!
