Auxiliary aids and services
Auxiliary aids and services include a wide range of people and devices that ensure effective communication within the University. Communication between the University and students, such as course lectures, publications, and telephone services, must be just as effective for students with disabilities as for others. Examples of auxiliary aids and services may include:
- amanuenses, readers, or scribes in the classroom
- readers for tests
- scribes for tests
- assistive listening devices
- assistive technology such as screen reader and magnification software
The Office for Disability Equity honors the reasonable preferences of students in deciding which aids and services to apply. While coordinators authorize auxiliary aids and services, management and application responsibilities rest with the student. In this way, the student can control employees and operates equipment as independently as possible.
