What are some ways in which a school can make its programs nondiscriminatory?

The following accommodations, if appropriate, could be provided.
  • Qualified sign language interpreters
  • Communication access realtime translation (CART)
  • Assistive listening systems
  • Captioning on all audio-visual materials
  • A visual representation, such as a transcript, of auditory information
  • Extra time to complete work
  • In class discussions, ensure that only one person at a time speaks.
  • When using visual presentations, make sure the visual material and the spoken explanation of the material are presented sequentially. A deaf student cannot look at a screen and an interpreter at the same time.
  • Pause during classroom lectures and discussions.
