Instructor provided class notes prior to class when available

Students with disabilities may face various challenges that affect their ability to take comprehensive notes during lectures, such as visual impairments, fine motor skill limitations, or processing difficulties. By receiving instructor-provided class notes in advance, these students can review and prepare themselves, ensuring they can fully engage in the classroom discussions and focus on understanding the material instead of struggling to keep up with note-taking. Additionally, having access to detailed notes allows students with disabilities to refer back to the content, reinforce their understanding, and accommodate their individual learning needs, fostering a more inclusive and supportive learning environment.

This accommodation only applies if the instructor already has prepared notes that are made available. Instructors are not required to create notes specifically to meet this accommodation.
