Students with disabilities may be accommodated with notetakers in their classes. Depending upon the student's functional limitations, notetakers serve to either supplement the student's notes or provide notes fully for the student.
Usually, notetakers are students enrolled in the same classes as students whose disabilities necessitate this service. Instructors and disability specialists will offer assistance in helping the student locate a notetaker.
Notetaker services are typically provided to students whose disabilities cause problems with manual dexterity, hearing, or cognition.
To assist with the process, the office of Disability services offers preassembled notebooks which include NCR paper. This enables the notetaker to keep their own notes organized and still give the student with disability a copy at the end of class.
