Accommodations

The best accommodations are unique to the individual and develop from a cooperative relationship between an instructor and the student, sometimes with the assistance of special education teachers or postsecondary campus disabled student services offices. In this area of the AccessSTEM website you will learn strategies for fully including students with disabilities in STEM courses and activities. You will also read case studies and answers to questions instructors frequently ask about accommodating students with disabilities in their classes.

Accommodation strategies below are organized by academic activity and disability. Specific strategies are also available for MESA curricula in the MESA Curriculum Supplement: How to Fully Include Students with Disabilities

For additional resources to help instructors work with students with disabilities consult the DO-IT publications Working Together: Science Teachers and Students with Disabilities, Working Together: Faculty and Students with Disabilities, and Working Together: K-12 Teachers and Students with Disabilities.
