This course introduces an iterative model for making accommodation decisions and evaluating their effectiveness with students. Beginning with the interactive process and cycling through collecting feedback, this process will help ensure students are receiving access services fitting their needs. Through the course, participants will analyze their current practices, assess their existing processes, and devise a strategy to implement sustainable improvements. The course is designed with experienced providers in mind, and encourages an evidence-based approach to monitor and adjust accommodations in a manner that prioritizes the student’s experience.
