Note Taker Services

A common concern for students is solving the problem of taking notes, especially students with poor motor functioning. The DSPS Office provides copying services so the notes can be shared between the student and note-taker. The most logical choice of a note-taker is a student who is also enrolled in the class who is known to be a good student with satisfactory penmanship and regular attendance.  

As the instructor you are usually the most appropriate individual to assist the student with the selection of a note-taker. You may do this by asking for a volunteer in the class. DSPS may provide aides to sit in class and take notes if there are special circumstances. The student bears the responsibility of speaking up promptly if the note-taker is unsatisfactory.  

In addition you may offer the students any printed notes or materials you may have which can assist them visually. Your creativity in meeting the student's needs can have very positive benefits! Please contact the DSPS Office if you have any questions regarding the provision of a note-taker.
