I second Lucy. I always went to the professor on campus before the semester started and worked out the details with him or her. The professor also got a letter from Student Affairs to provide any reasonable accommodation based on the Penn State policy.

Subject: [WebAIM] instructor question re: alternative accommodation

In one of our new products we have math 'games' that are highly visual. One suggestions is to have an instructor-side question that asks if a student needs alternative accommodations. If the instructor checks the box then the student is instead presented with a multiple choice question to learn the objective.

I was under the impression that a question of this nature may have legal implications yet I am unable to find resources nor examples. Anyone have experience and/or guidance?

Many thanks,
