Similar to the way AARC provides accommodations and services to enable students with disabilities to successfully complete their academic goals, the center provides accommodations for Western University faculty and staff who are eligible for this assistance. For example, accommodations might include ergonomic office equipment and chairs, adaptive computer equipment and software and/or assistance in purchasing hearing aids.
To understand more about interacting with students with disabilities as a Western University faculty or staff member, we recommend these online resources:
Communicating with People with Disabilities (25 minute streaming video, requires Windows Media Player)
