The Office of Disability Services and Disability Support Services wishes to invite all new faculty and graduate teaching assistants to go through the following tutorial, "Accommodating Students with Disabilities." This tutorial is self-paced and will educate you on the issues faced by students with disabilities and the proper methods to use in working with these students while at WSU.
Clicking on this url will take you to the tutorial where you will learn about disability law, the accommodation process, working with students who have disabilities, and universal design.
When you go to this site for the first time, you will need to click the "Sign up now!" link.
It will ask you to establish a user name and password. It will also ask you for some other general information. The key is wushock.
Once you have a user name and password you may enter and leave the site as often as you wish. This will allow you to work on and complete the training during your free time. Make sure you complete the evaluation section of the training when you have finished.
If you have any questions or concerns as you go through this process, please contact the director by phone at 316-978-6970 or by email. We hope you will find this training beneficial and our office looks forward to collaborating with you during your tenure here at WSU.
Creating Accessible Resources
We know that creating resources that are accessible to all students can be challenging, so in an effort to help all instructors learn to create those resources, we direct you to this website from Portland Community College. This tool explains web accessibility and how to create a variety of documents in a variety of subjects that are accessible to all students.
