Classroom Accommodations

Important Note:

For the majority of students, learning this semester will be online and/or remote.  Given this, traditional classroom accommodations may look different.

If you have registered your accommodations with the Blundon Centre, those accommodations are communicated to your instructors.  They will work with you to ensure your accommodations are provided in the remote or online learning environment, where appropriate.

If you have questions about how your accommodations will work in each course, we encourage you to speak with your instructor.  You can always speak to your Accessibility Advisor if you any further questions.  If you don't know who your Advisor is, simply email and we'd be glad to help.

Some examples of classroom accommodations include:

  • assistive devices or auxiliary aids (e.g., 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 for the student's review after class (see the university's policy on recording lectures for details)
  • wheelchair desk and/or a preferential seating location
  • breaks during class time (e.g., the student leaves the classroom for brief periods)
  • note-taking assistance (a classmate can use No Carbon Required paper from the Blundon Centre to create two copies of notes).
  • move classes, where practical, for wheelchair accessibility
