Reading and Verbal Processing Disabilities
Many students with learning disabilities cannot simultaneously listen to a lecture, process it and take adequate notes. Students with visual, hearing, motor, or processing disabilities may not be physically able to take notes. "Notetakers" and Scribes are classmates who take notes on behalf of the student with a disability. Information about Note takers and Scribes are available through DSS. A student or a DSS staff member may ask you for assistance in identifying a good note taker for one of your courses, but if you are unable to recommend a student or easily locate a volunteer, please contact us.
