Is the student always right? How to balance student requests with student needs

What we discussed

Your job as a disability support professional requires you to understand student’s needs whilst fulfilling their support requests. However, it can be challenging to balance the two out.

In our ‘Equity, Effectiveness and the Role of Peer Notetakers’ survey, 60% of respondents stated that ‘What the student requests’ is their primary motivation when deciding which note taking accommodations to offer. But is the student always right?

In this webinar our expert panel discussed student requests for accommodations, whether a lack of self-confidence affects students’ willingness to abandon peer notes, and some methods you can use to encourage students to take notes more independently.
