Some examples of classroom accommodations include:
- assistive devices or auxiliary aids (e.g., the professor uses an FM assistive listening device for a student who is hard of hearing)
- oral or sign language interpreters for students who are deaf
- permission to audiotape lectures
- wheelchair desk and/or a preferential seating location
- breaks during class time (e.g., student exits room momentarily when pain becomes unmanageable). In such cases, students may wish to ask a classmate to share lecture notes with them (to be their peer note taker).
- note-taking assistance (e.g., use of No-Carbon-Required [NCR] paper). For assistance arranging a note taker, students are advised to consult with theBlundon Centre.
- helping a student to obtain alternative format materials (e.g., electronic text, braille, or audiotape). Assistance is typically provided by the Blundon Centre or by other on- or off-campus service providers such as the campus library or the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. This does not include financial assistance.
- move classes, where practical, for wheelchair accessibility
