Adaptation to a Course, Program or Assignment

Academic accommodations might also include an adaptation to a component of a program, course, or assignment.

This could include (but is not limited to) a substitution of a component of a program; or alternative forms of evaluation, where appropriate, such as:

  • assigning a term paper instead of an oral presentation to a student with a severe speech impediment
  • using written instead of oral evaluation for a student with an auditory-processing learning disability
  • augmenting a written exam or assignment with an oral component for students with learning disabilities that affect written communication
