Video: Guide to the Office of Accessible Education Part 3

Overview | Part III: Balancing Accommodations with Academic Standards

After a brief introduction by Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Professor Dr. Harry Elam, Jr., this section features interviews with faculty, OAE staff, and students to answer the following questions:

  • Are students with disabilities held to the same academic standards as other Stanford students?
  • How does giving extended time level the playing field?
  • How does research support extended time for students with learning disabilities?
  • What do you do if an accommodation seems unreasonable?

Acknowledgement: This production was made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor, committed to ensuring all students have resources they need to succeed.

The Faculty Guide to the Office of Accessible Education video series was designed to be a flexible resource for faculty and staff. Videos can be watched separately to address specific questions or continuously for a more thorough introduction to the OAEand issues related to students with disabilities.
