Teaching Resource Guide
As a faculty or staff member at Texas State University, you may be asked to provide a student with a disability with classroom accommodations. This publication, Students with Disabilities, a Teaching Resource Guide, is designed to furnish information regarding Federal law and university policies in providing academic accommodations as well as some guidelines for communicating with students with disabilities.
This guide is intended as an overview. Specific considerations for individual students must be made on a case-by-case basis by the Office of Disability Services in collaboration with the instructor of the course, chair of the students academic department and/or dean of the students college.
Please provide ODS with any feedback you may have.
