You need to evaluate whether the student meets the "otherwise qualified" standard for the program.

Subject: [Athen] V.I. student in Vet Paramedic program

Oh Learned and Esteemed Athenites, I appeal to your vast collective knowledge:
We have a student, legally/medically blind with very little vision, enrolled in our veterinary paramedic program. This program includes a lot of lab work, including using a microscope to identify various specimens, etc. Although I've placed CCTVs in her classrooms for other work, I'm wondering how to accommodate her for the work needed using a microscope!? Not even sure how we would accommodate her when the course work gets to drawing blood, etc.

We're open to suggestions.
