Educators use a variety of strategies and learning accommodations to teach diverse learners. However, educators can struggle to make grade-level curriculum possible and achievable for students with intellectual disabilities. An educational process, known as modifying curriculum, can open doors to an inclusive, high quality education for students who work below grade level.
