Staff Development

In Conclusion

Congratulations! And thank you again for participating in our online faculty training program in Disabled Students Programs and Services and Universal Design

We hope to have answered any questions you had regarding the support of these valuable students in your classroom. I plan on continuing this series with specific (and less lengthy) modules on specific disabilities and how to best accommodate them.

Now that you have completed the module and both the pretest and the post test, email me at to let me know.

Don't be a stranger! Stop by anytime to visit our new offices in Room 1615 if you want additional suggestions for working with a particular student.

We hope you will be interested in also helping yourself to the other modules in this program, as they appear. Each one addresses a specific disability, and covers the following:

  • Definitions
  • Characteristics
  • Methods of instruction and evaluation
  • Interpersonal communications
  • Reasonable expectations
  • Recommended accommodations, adaptations, assistive technology, referrals

Happy teaching!
