  • Please have the potential note taker stop by our office to fill out the paperwork.

 

What is a "testing accommodation"?

  • Student will get extended time for the tests/quizzes.

How do I know if the notes I am providing is sufficient?

Do my videos need to be accessible?  If so, who do I contact?

  • Yes, all videos must be accessible to all students including students with disabilities.
  • Please contact Disability Services staff to have your videos captioned if you are planning to show the videos in your class.
  • We encourage you to have any videos you are planning to show in your classes captioned even if you do not have any students with disabilities.  Doing so will promote a Universal Design to your classes and utilizes additional learning tools which can be beneficial to all learners.
  • Please contact Disability Services at (920) 498-6904 regarding closed captioning a video.

 

What do I do if I suspect that it may be beneficial for a student to use the Disability Services?
