At the UA, instructors only know that they may have a role in supporting your use of accommodations when they are contacted specifically. The DRC will let them know that you are in the class and may use accommodations through the online identification process your Consultant discussed with you. However, putting a face to a name is always helpful. Just like any other student in the course, you’ll be most successful if you get to know your instructors… stop in during office hours and introduce yourself; ask questions during and after class if something is unclear; discuss any disability-related barriers or concerns you have.
Communicating with your instructors or TAs throughout the semester also gives you the chance to let them know if you’re confronting academic barriers related to your disability and whether accommodations are effective or should be adjusted. If at any time during the semester your accommodations are not effective, talk with an Access Consultant. The DRC only knows to follow-up when you tell us there’s a problem.
