Do you think accommodations should be general or specific?

Both, depending on the types of disablities and specific. With my dd, some of the accomadations are general, ie limiting the amount of info given at 1 time and allowing more time to process it. However, the SOD is pretty rare and comes with a very unique set of needs for each child (more so than with just blindness or a hearing impairment where the needs are more similar between different children) that just general accomadations aren't enough. I definately think that a blend of both depending on the child is appropriate.

Agree! I think sometimes educator's use general accommodations as loop holes.

I can see that too. But really, some kids need specific accomadations and if they don't get them, then the kids are at a great disservice. Sometimes in those cases, you wonder how much of an advocate the parents are or if they really understand the whole process. But, a lot of the fault lies with the school district too. They need to better evaluate and understand the kids to make sure that all appropriate measures are in place.
