How can we accommodate students using speech-to-text or interpreting services during online tutoring sessions?

For group tutoring sessions, check with the deaf student to see what accommodations would be most effective in this type of setting. If they request speech-to-text or interpreting services, coordinate these services the same way you would for any online appointment.

Remind students they should continue to follow the same procedures to request accommodations.

Discuss what options are available for the student, tutor and service provider to get connected on the platform being used.

Have a back-up plan or a second option to connect virtually (e.g., logging onto a different platform).

For one-on-one tutoring situations, consider using interactive approaches (e.g., Google Docs) to support visual support with chat features in one screen to discuss back and forth.
