Action Driven Education has the great privilege of working with some of the best schools, administrators, teachers, advocates, and parents from all across the country - here are some of the kind words they had to say.
“Accomods™ is such an incredible resource! I love that it offers a description, things to consider, examples, and even related information about the accommodation/modification. The website now has a spot on my phone's homepage.” " -BRITTANY R. /SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
"I really appreciate finding Accomods™. This program makes accommodations simpler and more understandable for everyone. Teacher input into the IEP process is more meaningful and efficient. My general education colleagues are able to find solutions for helping their students, and we've improved our 504 plans as well! Using the process of building a plan helps me and my colleagues consider the whole student and we find much more meaningful solutions. Teachers walk away knowing exactly what to do in their own classroom." -SHELLEY N. /SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
"When I initially met Mr. Kretchman and reviewed Action Driven Education at a Special Education Leadership Conference, I was excited about the opportunity to support our staff in the development of more individualized IEPs. After piloting Accomods™ with special educators, I began to see the benefits of global applications to all teachers and all learners. This platform integrates seamlessly into the MTSS framework, providing all users with a well-organized and easily accessible resource to support differentiation of instruction and environmental accommodations. Action Driven Education sets the stage for a more equitable learning environment while simultaneously builds problem-solving capacity amongst teachers. We will be continuing our subscription and have already introduced this resource to all teachers K-12. We are excited to watch the growth that results!" -AMANDA P. /SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST MS. NCSP
"Accomods is great for special education but really great for the regular education teacher also!
The tools within Accomods™ proved valuable this past school year by simplifying teacher planning (differentiation/personalization), development of IEP’s, and impacting student learning. It truly is a tool to impact successful inclusion within our school by considering student strengths and needs and then building effective plans to support or enrich. The tool not only considered the assessments when planning but also addresses student behavior and curriculum modifications.
Time is always an issue in the education field, but Accomods™ saves valuable time that can be devoted to more effective planning and discussion for staff. It encourages effective team planning for meaningful student discussions that impact student learning outcomes, classroom, or virtual. Most importantly, it supports our Growth Mindset belief for all students." -DR. JOE M. /ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL
"Accomods™ makes developing individualized student supports simple." -JAMES H. /ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT
"Accomods™ inspired our staff to 'think outside of the box' when developing accommodations for all learners." -AMY C. /DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EDUCATION
"Accomods™ is a fantastic tool for so many things, including helping students remove obstacles in their learning, creating appropriate SDA's in IEP's, growing a strong MTSS program, and strengthening classroom management." -DR. HEATHER B. /PRINCIPAL & DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EDUCATION
"Accomods™ will help my staff link disability to appropriate accommodations." -SUZIE S. /DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EDUCATION
"Meeting Tim has been an outstanding privilege that is filled with his authentic desire to help and support educators in their quest to support all learners academically, socially, and emotionally. Our school trained all K-12 staff and faculty on Accomods™ during the 2021-22 school year. Staff and faculty enjoyed the easy access, the program efficiency, and the built-in tools to help differentiate SDIs, IEPs, and to support an MTSS framework in our K-12 schools to personalize learning for all learners! Our school is committed to all learners achieving their personal best, and Accomods™ is one resource that will help support our staff and faculty on this journey of supporting all learners!" -DR LISA M. /DIRECTOR OF PUPIL SERVICES
"Tim earns respect by his ability to relate to his audience." -DR. MICHELLE H. /SUPERINTENDENT
"Accomods™ is sorely needed!" -SARA H. /SPECIAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR
"Tim is a huge asset to any team that brings him on board. His background as an educator and administrator allows him to clearly understand the complexities and importance of individualization, collaboration, professional development, and supporting all students. He is sensitive to school and teacher perspectives while also working to improve student achievement through family involvement and bringing clarity to the complicated world of special education." -ABBY F. /SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVOCATE AND TEACHER
