Types of Disability Accommodations

Types of Disability Accommodations

Accommodations are individualized and intended to provide access to the institution’s programs and services. The accommodation will help minimize the impact a disability has on a student’s academic performance without fundamentally altering the nature of a program or service. During an Intake Appointment, you and your Disability Coordinator will decide which accommodations are reasonable and appropriate. Some examples of accommodations include: Adaptive Furniture Alternative Format Course Materials (textbooks, tests, etc.) Alternative Test Site Assistive Technology Extended Test Time Lab Assistance Note Taking Priority Registration Sign-Language Interpreter Special Advising.
