Procedure for Assisting Students with Temporary Conditions
If a student in your class has a limitation due to an injury or illness and it is expected to be short-term (less than 6 months), please make every effort to provide the appropriate modifications within the classroom.
Using the example of a dominant hand injury, appropriate modifications might include:
- A temporary notetaker
- Taping lectures
- Use of a laptop for testing
- Extended time on tests
- Copies of overheads or notes from instructor
If the current classroom is inaccessible due to mobility issues or health conditions that make climbing stairs difficult or impossible, please request a classroom change.
If you are not sure about what types of modifications are appropriate, you can contact the Disability Resource Center and speak with a coordinator.
If the duration of a student’s condition is severe, or is expected to have long-term or permanent functional limitations, please have the student contact the Disability
