ADA / Extra Information
(ADA - Americans with Disabilities Act) Students with documented disabilities requesting class accommodations, or require special arrangements in case of building evacuation should contact me at the beginning of the quarter or set up an appointment with the Disability Support Counselor in room BE 1112. Also, contact me early if you require a front-of-the-room computer so I can reserve it for you.
Assistants for students (sign-language, etc) are welcome in class. If you wish your assistant(s) to also receive emails for the class, please inform me with their email addresses - otherwise I will assume you will forward/discuss emails of note to them yourself. Also, you may need to make arrangements with your assistant(s) to assist you with interpreting any class videos, since at this time they are not produced with closed captioning.
Note: If there is an ADA machine in the classroom, the related keyboard is not to be unhooked. Please use another computer. Thanks!!
