Strategies for Temporary Medical Conditions

Some students may develop medical conditions that take time to resolve such as: broken limbs, illness or surgery. We encourage instructors to use common sense and provide the accommodations that are needed.

Some strategies to consider:

  • Arrange for a fellow classmate to share class notes with the student. (Volunteer Notetakers)

  • Provide extra time for the student to complete projects and assignments.

  • Encourage the student to record lectures.

  • Permit the student to audio record quiz and test answers. This accommodation might increase the amount of time needed to complete the exam.

  • Provide the student with an oral quiz or exam.

If the student needs an accommodation that the instructor is unable to provide, the instructor may encourage the student to contact Disability Resources.

Please contact a D.R. advisor if you would like to discuss strategies, or if you have any questions (541) 463-5150.
