  • Disability Services: The Learning Assistant

    Learning Assistants provide a variety of academic supports outside of the classroom setting. While Learning Assistants are not tutors, they do provide specialized support when it comes to reading, dictation, and image descriptions. The majority of a Learning Assistant’s shift is typically spent reading class notes and a student’s textbook aloud, though some students who are approved for a Learning Assistant choose to engage in reading independently, and only require occasional assistance with descriptions of images, graphs, math formulas, etc. Learning Assistants are typically asked to provide a fair amount of repetition, and they may be asked to return to previous notes, chapters, etc. in order to make requested connections to previously covered content. In some instances, Learning Assistants may also provide scribing support for homework if they are not a student registered with the any section of the same class for which they are approved as a Learning Assistant. ($12.25)

  • Disability Services: Golf Spotter

Training for this position is provided by the United States Blind Golf Association, and takes roughly 15-45 minutes. Once trained, a spotter will typically get to know the student over time, and a rapport will naturally be built as a partnership forms and the spotter starts to understand what the student needs. ($12.25)

  • Disability Services: Note Taker

    Note takers provide a specialized service focused on providing class notes to students who are approved for a peer note taker. In some instances, the note taker works directly with the students and/or knows who the students is, and in other cases this relationship remains completely anonymous on both sides (this is typically determined by the student who is approved for the note taking accommodation). The format of notes may vary depending on student need, and can include typed notes, handwritten notes, or a hybrid, such as utilizing a stylus with a tablet; the format in each instance is determined by specific student need. In instances where specialized note taking is required, the note taker is provided with both training and tools (such as an iPad) for the semester. It is common for the first few weeks to involve feedback from all parties involved, which often results in some modifications on the part of the note taker as it relates to the student’s note taking needs. ($12.25)

  • Disability Services: Reader/Scribe

    Readers and Scribes provide an important service for students who are unable to read and/or write information, for various reasons. Readers and scribes are most frequently utilized for students with testing accommodations during tests, quizzes, and exams, though they may sometimes be utilized for homework assignments/projects. A reader and scribe’s job is strictly to read provided text, and write information that a student dictates—they never provide guidance, answer questions, or give cues regarding information. All students hired for this position receive training regarding these job duties. ($12.25)
