If a student in your class has identified him/herself as having a learning disability, and has presented appropriate University documentation, you are required by law (the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990) to provide any and all reasonable accommodations required by the student in order to successfully complete your course. Please note that the ADA also applies to students with physical and psychological disabilities.
In general, it is best to discuss with the student, in private, the accommodations s/he will require. Typical accommodations include untimed exams, oral exams, time-and-a-half on exams, non-multiple choice exams, and taping record lectures and discussions.
If you require assistance or have questions regarding a disabled student’s needs, the Office of Disability Services can assist you.
