Understanding Justice

“Accommodations such as having a test read to a child, having notes printed for someone with dysgraphia, having extra time on a test, a requirement that a child not have to read in front of the class…..these are all ACCOMMODATIONS. These are free. They are not a crutch and they don’t give the child an “unfair advantage.” Would you strip a child of glasses or hearing aids because other children don’t have them? Accommodations are not about making our lives easier. They are about providing justice for a child. Providing the opportunity to feel successful. Doesn’t every child deserve that chance?”

Eloquently put by the  Dyslexia Project.
