Here's the list of his accommodations. The woman in charge of the Disabled Services department said they'll check in with him and see if he needs even more help. How sweet is that?
- Preferential seating (either near the instructor or near the door)
- Testing in the test center instead of in class, with extended test-taking time
- Additional peer tutoring (all students can get one hour a week; he'll get as much as he needs)
- If he prefers, he can take tests in a private testing room
- Additional time to complete in-class written assignments (in the Learning Center)
- If the instructor uses PowerPoint presentations, he'll receive those in advance of the lecture
- The services of a note taker, and he can also record lectures
They also list behaviors he may display (so the instructor won't be annoyed/surprised)
- He may lose eye contact
- He may feel the need to walk out of the classroom (for the bathroom or if he needs to settle himself)
They've bent over backwards here, and some people may think he has an unfair advantage over other students - and maybe he does.
His challenges are significant, but he should be able to make progress.
Now that they've made it as easy as possible for him to succeed, the rest is up to him.
