Accomodating student


08-Jun-2015 14:09

Make a verbal statement inviting students with a disability to request accommodations.

Some Deaf/HH students use hearing aids, some have cochlear implants, while others use neither; some know sign language, others do not; some can speak intelligibly, others cannot; etc.

Accommodations can range from the less obvious (preferential seating, note-taking assistance), to the noticeable (personal FM system consisting of a transmitter worn by the professor and a receiver/headphone unit worn by the student), to the highly visible (a sign language or oral interpreter, cued speech transliterator, communication access realtime translation (CART), or closed-captioned videos) and any combination of these.
