The goal of accommodations is to provide access to educational programs and co-curricular activities.
Some general information about accommodations:
- Accommodations are provided on an individual basis as needs arise. Accommodations are designed around the needs of the student.
- Examples of accommodations include: extended testing time, interpreters, note-taking, reader services, scribe services, audio books and other adaptive technology services.
- Providing accommodations such as extended test time or altered test formats is the responsibility of the faculty member. Disability Services may provide suggestions or assistance when necessary to implement the accommodation.
- Although not accommodations, Disability Services supports students with issues and situations related to advocacy, accessibility, on-campus housing, transportation services, and attendant care.
- DS is a resource for information including, but not limited to, tutoring services, study skills and time management, community resources, disability awareness, and various University services.
- Although the University is not required to accommodate students with temporary disabilities (i.e., limbs in casts, a severe case of mononucleosis), faculty and staff may provide assistance such as recruiting volunteer note-takers or giving extensions on tests or paper deadlines.
- With the support of the Disability Services Department in College Station and Information Technology at Texas A&M at Qatar, Disability Services has the capability to provide adaptive technology when needed. Specific accommodations will be arranged through Disability Services.
