5. Use a notetaker during meetings.

A notetaker can provide a summary of the meeting content. However, if he cannot adequately hear or lip read to follow the conversation, this strategy is not ideal because it does not support his active participation during the group interaction. Talk to the student to determine what accommodations he needs to fully participate.
