Back-to-school Updates from Disability Support Services
- Remember to include a DSS syllabus statement on your syllabi. Sample statements can be cut and pasted from this link.
- The Lead Sign Language Interpreter notifies faculty members who have a deaf or hard-of-hearing student in a class so the faculty member is aware that all videos must be captioned. This includes videos that are shown in class and online. The captioning request form is available online.
- Read&Write is downloadable software that is available for all faculty and students. Videos on the toolbar teach the viewer how to use the programs.
- Many different learning styles and health conditions create barriers for students. Your class design can mitigate some of those barriers. The DSS Faculty Handbook offers suggestions.
