4. Tell another student to take notes for her.

It is essential that you protect the student's privacy. Although you may announce to a class that you would like to have a volunteer notetaker, do not identify the specific student for whom a notetaker is needed. Once a volunteer is identified, with the approval of the student with a disability, you can arrange for them to meet and share notes.
