In college, we must talk with our professors about our accommodation needs. Here are suggestions for ways to begin discussions:
“My name is ___. I am registered with Accessible Learning, and you would have received my accommodation form from my advisor____. The accommodations I might need or will need to access in your class is ____.
“I would like to discuss my accommodation for an extended time. I will need to use the extra time to complete my test/in-class assignment, I would like to arrange to write it in a quiet alternative setting with supervision.”
“Because I am easily distracted, I need to take tests/quizzes in a quiet environment. Can we discuss my accommodation for a quiet environment?”
“I would like to access my accommodation to use the computer for writing my test.”
