Accommodations can include services, teaching approaches, compensatory strategies, and changes or modifications in the learning environment that enable students with documented disabilities to demonstrate their ability to perform the essential skills and functions required in a program or course. Accommodations are intended to ensure equal access to learning opportunities and to allow equal program participation. For example, an interpreter can provide access to lectures and discussions for a student who has a hearing disability. The knowledge that is to be learned by the student remains the same as for all students.
Postsecondary institutions may provide academic adjustments if they do not change course outcomes or program requirements or place an undue burden on the institution. For example, reducing the acceptable level of skill required to pass an exam may result in a student not mastering a task that is required for safe and competent performance in the student’s chosen field. Modifications such as this are not appropriate in preparing students for successful futures.
Postsecondary education institutions provide approved accommodations to students with documented disabilities including, but not limited to:
- Assistive technology
- Testing accommodations
- Support from note-takers
Accommodations are intended to ensure access that allows students with disabilities to compete equally with their non-disabled peers. Not all accommodations are appropriate for every student.
