For example, a student who is blind or has severe dyslexia would not need accommodations for oral presentations, but since both are effectively "print blind" they might reasonably have note-takers, adaptive testing, and books on tape. Fundamental Goals Working with your college instructors will be important so that you can select between possible accommodation strategies the ones that will provide you with the maximum opportunity for both learning and demonstrating mastery. If in a particular situation an accommodation infringes on a course's fundamental goals, then the student is not entitled to the accommodation in that situation. Guidelines For You

The biggest drawback of this site is its size. It does have a search field for only the site to assist with this obstacle. If I could change anything about this site it would be to have a video highlighting the features and resources on this site. by dbardwell Mar 22
