A memory aid may be determined to be an appropriate accommodation for a student with a disability that impacts their memory. Some of the specific diagnoses may include but are not limited to: Acquired Brain Injury, Specific Learning Disability, Processing Disorder, Psychiatric diagnosis, or medical conditions. A memory aid is a tool designed to trigger information that a student has studied, it is not a notecard or cheat sheet. This cue sheet will allow a student to demonstrate they know and understand the material by prompting them but not providing the exact answer.
The student is responsible for designing the memory aid and securing approval from the instructor prior to its use. In most cases the student and instructor will determine an appropriate window for approval which allows the instructor to remove content they deem inappropriate but also allows the student to look at instructor edits and potentially submit changes.
