Abstract

While existing research explores the use of AT in higher education, literature is lacking regarding students' and faculty feedback on AT and disability services. Further research is required to determine how to enhance implementation and reception of accommodations students receive from disability services at post-secondary institutions based on combined feedback from students and faculty. This study aims to provide better insight on the experiences of both students and faculty on their usage and guidance in accommodations provided. This includes assistive technology and aiding disability services in enhancing their delivery to achieve the most meaningful and effective student outcomes in academia.
