What if the instructor is not comfortable with wearing an assistive listening device microphone?

Inform the instructor that assistive listening devices are considered reasonable accommodations to ensure effective communication in all settings. Instructors should consult with the DSS office with any concerns.

Communicate with the instructor the steps your school is taking to ensure that equipment is properly sanitized and maintained after each use.

Consider providing individual lapel microphones for each instructor to use for the entire semester.

Reach out to the manufacturer to see if table top microphones could be used instead of lapel microphones.

Ask members on the NDC listserv on how they have addressed faculty concerns.
