Accessing the General Curriculum

According to the Beach Center on Disability, "access to the general curriculum refers to the education of students with disabilities in the academic, extra-curricular, and other activities of the schools they attend. It also refers to their progress in those components of the general curriculum and their participation in state and local district assessments. Progress occurs through the adaptation of the curriculum (what students learn), modifications of the methods of instruction (how students learn), and assessments (how well students have learned and schools have educated them)." For students who are deaf-blind, these adaptations and modifications can be significant.
