Teaching Students with Disabilities

Faculty and staff also play an integral role in the success of students with disabilities. 

Ways You Can Support  Students with Disabilities:

· Always maintain confidentiality regarding student disability information.

· Include a statement about disabilities (as suggested below) on your  syllabus to show awareness of the needs of students with disabilities.

· Meet with students to review/accept SEAS letters.

· If a note taker is requested, please manage the  Note Taker announcement process confidentially .

· Arrange for extra time on tests.

· Contact SEAS for support, if needed.

· Refer any student to SEAS that you suspect may need evaluation or possible SEAS support.

· Be flexible when students have scheduling conflicts due to extended time testing.

· Work with students as much as possible even if the accommodations request is provided on short notice.
