Accommodation Plans outline the necessary accommodations for which the student is eligible. The Coordinator of Accessibility Resources creates the Accommodation Plan. Assigning appropriate accommodations requires an individualized, interactive process with the student to understand the context of their disability, their academic experience so far, and documentation from a healthcare provider. Signing a student’s Accommodation Plan lets both the student and the Accessibility Resources know you have been made aware of their accommodations.
