Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way: Supporting University Students With A Disability's_a_will/content.htm

UniAbility (Flinders University, The University of Adelaide, University of South Australia) guide intended to provide students and academic staff “with a sample of ideas and strategies that can legitimately be incorporated into the teaching and evaluation of university courses to maximise the chances of success . . .

DO-IT Program: Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology

DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology), located at the University of Washington, serves to increase the participation of individuals with disabilities in challenging academic programs and careers. The “Faculty Room” section of their website is a space for faculty and administrators at postsecondary institutions to learn about how to create classroom environments and activities that maximize the learning of all students, including those with disabilities. Information about designing learning activities to be accessible to the widest possible range of students is organized by type of activity (everything from artwork and written assignments to science labs and group work) AND by type of disability or impairment. Each section provides a discussion of what faculty can expect, suggested accommodations, FAQ, case study and resources. Lots more!
