Question

I teach science. Is it okay to read a test outloud and/or allow a student to respond verbally if the student has reading difficulties but does not have a school plan or IEP? I would not provide any additional help...just read it word for word...so I believe this is an acceptable accommodation. I am accessing what students know about the science concepts. What are your thoughts on this?

I believe it is a very acceptable accommodation but I would check school/district policies and
state law.
