Hi Terri et al ATHENites,

Answering as a foreign language instructor, I would say this type of accommodation alters the learning outcomes of the class. As a DSS manager (former) I would recommend extended test time and a quiet testing room to help with anxiety reduction.

My thoughts.

Hello! Has anyone ever given an accommodation like this: -translation dictionary (paper only and the version must be approved by instructor)-

For a student who has a disability and a language impairment. Language impairments aren't considered a disability, but since this student also has a disability, would you give an accommodation like this? It is just for translation assistance to reduce his anxiety during an exam, no definitions and approved by the instructor? Let me know what you think. Thanks.
