Hi all,

We have a visually impaired student enrolled in our audio engeneering program who needs to take two circuitry classes. Unfortunately, the instructor is very, very, resistant to having this student in his class. He claims it is a safety risk that puts the college at high risk of liability. In fact, the student was enrolled and went to the first day of classes and the instructor talked him out of the class.

Now the dean of the program is wanting to know if there is anyway we can accommodate the student so that he can finish the program. I think most of the two classes (especially the first one) can be accommodated, but I've never had to do this before. Has anybody dealt with such an issue? Any pointers would be appreciated.
