Things like surgeries and accidents can cause temporary disabilities that make full academic participation a challenge. We work with individual students to devise solutions for meeting their academic demands. Timely student contact is essential and, in many cases, planning is crucial.
Though certainly not exhaustive, the following accommodations are helpful to students struggling with temporary disabilities:
- Peer notetakers
- Scribe services
- Temporary handicapped parking
- Restricted parking for medical reasons
- Reasonable extensions of time to complete tests, quizzes, or other class assignments
- Use of a computer to complete tests or quizzes
