A student is having difficulty in my class, but does not have a Student Disability Services Letter of Accommodation. What should I do?
The College of Western Idaho believes that students should develop skills of self-advocacy, be aware of their disabilities, and assist in the process of finding strategies to be successful. Ultimately, it is the student’s decision to seek assistance from the Student Disability Services. If a student reveals a disability to an instructor, the instructor may then refer the student to Student Disability Services. However, as a general rule, faculty should not ask students to disclose or ask questions about a student’s disability.
