Accomodating learners

Accommodations can range from the less obvious (preferential seating, note-taking assistance), to the noticeable (personal FM system consisting of a transmitter worn by the professor and a receiver/headphone unit worn by the student), to the highly visible (a sign language or oral interpreter, cued speech transliterator, communication access realtime translation (CART), or closed-captioned videos) and any combination of these.Accommodations can even vary for the same student from one class to another.Note: Details about how different service providers work appear below.
