[Athen] question of accommodating student with RMI

Hello All:

Here's an interesting case that came up. A graduate student who recently
started in a Humanities program on campus states that he cannot use a
computer keyboard - though he can hand write. Even a short time a computer
keyboard will exacerbate his RMI (carpal tunnel syndrome). He requested
someone to type for him (he needs to answer e-mails as part of his graduate
program, for example) for a number of hours per week. We did not provide
this accommodation. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any opinions
on whether this should be a legally required accommodation?
