Abstract/Description

While OLR can identify accommodations, success depends on partnerships among OLR, faculty, and students in accommodation coordination. Join us for some real-life discussions about accommodations, student engagement, misconceptions about accommodations, and the process for medical withdrawals.

Topics will include:

  1. Frequently requested accommodations (extended testing time, modified attendance, audio recordings, etc.) and the factors that go into making these decisions.

  2. Student engagement with faculty on accommodation implementation: how we try to move students beyond the accommodation letter email being the “only” communication addressed.

  3. Accommodation misconceptions with real-life scenarios on topics including modified attendance, late exam requests, rescheduling exams, and the OLR final exam schedule.

  4. The voluntary medical withdrawal (VMW) process and how faculty and advisors may be engaged in this process, from connecting students to OLR, sharing the last date of attendance, and providing general support for students.

We do not expect everyone will become an expert on accommodations or medical withdrawals, but we hope engaging the campus community will help create a wider understanding, which in turn will support students and strengthen our partnerships. As always, OLR also welcomes questions from participants. Anyone wishing to bring a question to our attention prior to the presentation can send an email to disabilityservices@udayton.edu.

Goals for Attendees

1. Increase understanding of frequently requested accommodations. 2. Gain insight into student collaboration regarding accommodations.
