Question 2: If you had a student with a disability in your course, how much difficulty would you have in marking his/her work as inferior if it actually deserved receiving such a grade?

Tip A: Expect the same quality work from students with disabilities as from others. Giving students with disabilities extra help may be important, but passing them along based primarily on their disability and not their work is not a favor to them nor to the other students

Tip B: Build personal relations with staff from the office/center for students with disabilities. They can help you with accessibility and students' personal issues. When you have a student trying to manipulate you, these staff people could intercede to support you.
