Abstract

Institutions of higher education currently must develop policies for accommodating students with disabilities. The most common practice is for instructors to provide "accommodations" in class procedures for students certified as disabled. This approach is difficult because instructors lack models of how to respond to requests for accommodation. In this article, we describe a personalized system of instruction (Keller, 1968), a mastery learning model (Bloom, 1976) for an introductory psychology course that makes accommodation simply part of what occurs in class on a regular basis.
