When you have a student in your class who has a visual impairment:

  • Provide book lists or syllabi in advance to allow time for arrangements to be made, such as producing books in alternative format or brailling of texts (DSS will assist in producing books in alternative format);

  • Plan ahead for handouts provided during the semester to allow them to be prepared in alternative format so that students with visual impairments will have those materials at the same time they are provided to other students;

  • Anticipate the need for accommodated tests, e.g. extended time, enlarged format, tape recorded exams, use of a scribe, etc. (DSS will assist with administering exams and preparing exams in alternative format);

  • Allow use of tape recorders, braille notetaking devices, etc. in class;

  • Verbalize the content of materials presented on the chalkboard or overheads; and

  • Face the class when speaking.
