JAN’S ACCOMMODATION FACT SHEET SERIES S AMPLE A CCOMMODATION S ITUATIONS AND S OLUTIONS FOR S TUDENTS WITH D ISABILITIES The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) receives accommodation questions about students with disabilities in classroom environments, such as public schools, post- secondary schools (including college or technical school), continuing education, vocational schools, and internships/employment. These questions come from the students themselves, academic advisors, instructors, and family members. These callers want to know about accommodation ideas that will work in educational environments. JAN provides basic educational and training instructional strategies that facilitate learning among students with disabilities in classroom or training sessions. Primarily, JAN consultants provide information on accommodations that assist with inclusion, equal opportunities, and transitioning from school to work. Nearly one million students with disabilities attend undergraduate college courses and nearly 90,000 attend graduate school (U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, "The 1995-96 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study" at ). The most common type of disability for school-age children is specific learning disabilities, but individuals who are working and attend training or extended learning courses, may also need accommodations. Students with disabilities are of all ages and have a variety of impairments. Students may have difficulty performing certain functions due to motor, mobility, cognitive/neurological, psychiatric, and sensory impairments. JAN consultants provide this publication as a way to share accommodation situations and solutions from educational settings. For a more in depth discussion, access JAN's publications at . To discuss an accommodation situation with a consultant, contact JAN directly. Situations and Solutions: A middle school student with cancer experienced fatigue and nausea during the afternoon. As an accommodation, JAN suggested transferring the student to core subjects like math, science, and reading that were scheduled in the mornings, allowing afternoons off. Another accommodation idea was to let the student complete his lessons at home while listening on the telephone or Internet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
