Ericae.net - A teacher's Resource: Teaching Students With Disabilities

Teaching students with disabilities takes compassion, patience and a little creativity. Students with disabilities face unique challenges and require assistance and accommodations. Students are not obligated to reveal or discuss their disability with their instructors, but if they do, it is important that information be kept confidential. To avoid stereotypes, it is essential to establish accommodations that need to be made in the beginning of the semester. This way the student can know in advance what is expected of him or her.
