Understand student accessibility needs

Create a student support plan

The student support plan helps to ensure that students receive the necessary accommodations to achieve their learning goals. It is important to set up a proactive support system in which teachers can promote a positive learning environment and reduce potential barriers for students with disabilities and support staff are informed about the adaptations that the student may need.

Assess individual student needs

Identifying the specific needs of students allows informed decisions on the individual accommodations and support provided to ensure equal access to the learning experience. E.g. preferred screen reader software, office application and the means of receiving and learning study contents.

Identify student user groups

User groups are made to plan support resources and activities. However, remember that assuming things about students or putting them into categories must be avoided.
