As an instructor you will rarely know the specifics of a student's disability. In some cases, a student may ask to meet with you to discuss his or her disability, but in most cases, a student will notify you that he or she is working with the Office of Accessibility Resources and Services (OARS) by initiating conversations after their accommodation letter has been sent via email. The letter will list the accommodations they are eligible to receive as a result of their documented disabilities (but it will not give the specifics of the disability).


If you have questions or concerns about a student you are working with, you can contact our office and ask to speak with the Accessibility Specialist who is working with that student. The Accessibility Specialist can provide you with some guidance for working with the student.
