Allied Health/Clinical Accommodations

The issue of academic adjustments, auxiliary aides, services and accommodations for students with disabilities in clinical settings necessitates procedures for colleges.  Here are some resources to assist colleges in their decision-making.

“OCR encourages post-secondary institutions to engage in a conscientious and diligent process with students in determining which academic adjustments are appropriate and do not fundamentally alter course requirements. When a specific adjustment requested by a student cannot be implemented due to the nature of the clinical setting or due to legal regulations applicable to that setting, a college must explore whether there are other effective options for accommodating the student”.
