occurs when students with disabilities are actively engaged in learning the content and skills of the same curriculum that is being taught to general education students.

Access is more likely to occur when instructional and learning goals are operationalized and monitored through appropriate assessments, research-based instructional practices and materials are utilized, and accommodations matched to the childâ€(tm)s individual needs are made available.
