Student Educational Opportunity

When you have a student in your class with an orthopedic or physical disability:

  • Be understanding if a student is occasionally late to class, particularly in inclement weather. UDSS works with students to be sure that classes are located in accessible buildings, and will assist with scheduling classes so that they are located physically close together, if necessary;
  • Allow students with hand function limitations to use tape recorders, or assist with locating volunteer note takers from the class;
  • Some students may need test accommodations, such as use of a computer, a scribe, or audio-taping answers. UDSS can oversee these arrangements;
  • In lab situations, some students may need assistance with using an alternative table or lab bench; or with manipulating tools, lab equipment, and/or chemicals. An assistant or lab partner, who merely functions as an aide, also may be needed;
  • Treat the student as you would all other students. In some cases, you will not need to do anything special at all.
