YOUR ROLE

Accessibility Services supports students with disabilities using a variety of accommodations. While you may have personal experience supporting someone with a particular disability, it is important to understand that accommodations are tailored to each student – not each disability.

Not all students with a disability will choose to register with Accessibility Services. You may even encounter a student who is unaware that they have a disability. You can learn more about recognizing common disabilities, along with additional ways to support your students in the Faculty Intranet Site.

By working together we’ll ensure that student’s needs are met while preserving the integrity of your course. We encourage you to read Mount’s policy to support students with disabilities for additional information about your role in providing an accessible academic experience.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like?

Dyslexia

This simulation demonstrates some common symptoms of dyslexia. You are given 60 seconds to read a paragraph aloud. The letters in this paragraph are reversed, inverted, transposed, and spelling is inconsistent.

Unable to FOCUS

This simulation demonstrates how difficult it can be to navigate even a simple site when operating under an intense cognitive load as someone with a cognitive disability might experience.

Web Accessibility

Most of us can hardly conceive of life without the internet. Some have argued that no other single invention has been more revolutionary since Gutenberg’s printing press in the 1400s. The world can be “at your fingertips” at the click of a mouse—if you can use a mouse… and see the screen… and hear the audio.
