PLAN Workshop- There’s a Student with a Disability in My Class… What Do I Do Now?
Description. The purpose of this program is to inform graduate teaching assistants about the resources available through the Disability Resource Center and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. The program will discuss how students get connected with the Disability Resource Center, examples of services provided, and how graduate teaching assistants can contribute to providing access for students with disabilities with support from the Delphi Center.
Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the process through which a student with a disability requests and receives accommodations
2. List some of the accommodations students with disabilities might receive through the Disability Resource Center
3. Apply their knowledge to assist students with disabilities who receive accommodations in their course.
