When determining accommodations, Malone considers the following questions:
- Did the student self-disclose to the Center for Student Success?
- No faculty member is required to offer any accommodations in the classroom until they receive a written request from this office that is sent only with the student's consent. Does the documentation submitted by the student meet all criteria listed (prior page)?
- What are the barriers resulting from the interaction between the documented disability and the campus environment?
- What are the possible accommodations that might remove the barriers?
- Accommodations offered at the high school level may or may not be continued based on the current functional limitations of the student at the collegiate/university level.
- Without the accommodations, would the student have access to the course, program, service, job or facility?
