Classroom Accommodations

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., 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
