I really enjoyed reading your post. It made me think of adaptations in a completely different way. "You never put anything in place- a behavior plan, a modification, a support- that you do not already have an idea of how to take away in the future." I had not thought of adaptations in this way before but it makes complete sense. We are adapting the curriculum so that students can access it with the hope that this will benefit them in the future. I also loved your analogy of teaching your child to swim. Of course we teach children to swim in the hope that they will one day be able to swim independently. It would not make any sense to throw them in the deep end to see how they do first. It also wouldn't make sense to continue to teach your child to swim once she can do it independently. I will now be thinking of all the adaptations and modifications that I have for my students and how those can be taken away or further adapted when they are ready.
