The most commonly utilized classroom accommodations include:

  • Testing accommodations (additional time, distraction-reduced environment, private room)
  • Adjusted assignment deadlines in consultation with CAE
  • Adjusted attendance requirements: The CAE generally considers the following allotment of absences reasonable for a standard 10-week course. However, please note, any approved adjustment to an attendance policy as a reasonable accommodation must be determined on a case-by-case basis with CAE consultation:
    • a) 4 absences in a course meeting 3 times per week, or b) 3 absences in a course meeting 2 times per week, or c) 1 absence in a course meeting 1 time per week.
  • Notetaking Support can include Glean, Otter Voice Notes, Livescribe Smartpen, Audio Record Lectures, Notetaking Express, and peer notetaking.
  • Breaks During Class: There is no limit to how many breaks can be taken. The student is expected to come back to class after break. Student should still be present for the majority of class time.
  • Disability Seating: This means that the student has a seating need based on disability. If the student is unable to access their needed seat/desk, the CAE will consult with Facilities to provide the required seating accommodation.
  • Adjusted Participation Requirements: In some cases, a student’s disability may impact their ability to participate fully in courses. If participation is a fundamental aspect of your course, an alternative accommodation may be determined by contacting the student’s CAE Specialist.

For detailed information about student accommodations, please contact the CAE Disability Specialist listed at the bottom of the CAE Accommodation Letter for the student.
