What are the rights and responsibilities of an instructor when working with students with disabilities?

An instructor has the right to confirm a student's request for accommodations and to ask for clarification about a specific accommodation with Disabilities Services. Instructors do not have the right to refuse to provide an accommodation or to review a student's documentation including diagnostic data. Instructors have a responsibility to work with Disabilities Services in providing reasonable accommodations, keep all records and communications with students confidential, and to refer a student to Disabilities Services who requests accommodations but is not currently registered. Instructors do not have to provide accommodations for students not registered with Disabilities Services.
