Faculty members can help normalize the accommodation process by making an announcement at the first class meeting or by voluntarily including a statement on the syllabus inviting students with disabilities to meet with the faculty member during office hours to discuss accommodation needs. SDS has developed the following syllabus statement for your use:
Please address any special needs or special accommodations with me at the beginning of the semester or as soon as you become aware of your needs. Those seeking accommodations based on disabilities should obtain a Student Academic Accommodation Request (SAAR) form from Student Disability Services (SDS) (phone 319-273-2677, for deaf or hard of hearing, use Relay 711). SDS is located on the top floor of the Student Health Center, Room 103.
