Ask students before the semester to contact the Disability Resource and Services so that any accommodations they need can be set up as soon as possible to be able to make your classroom accessible to everyone on the first day.


  • Before the first class, email all enrolled students and ask them to email Disability Resource and Services about accommodations they will need to be successful in your class.


  • Official notifications from the institution that a student in your class requires an accommodation may not precede the first class session. Some accommodations, such as access to a printed copy of lecture slides for vision impaired students, is important to provide on the first day.
