Strategies for Accommodating Extension Clients Who Face Language, Vision, or Hearing Challenges

Journal of Extension, v54 n4 Article 4TOT2 Aug 2016
Extension services nationwide seek to equalize access to university resources for all learners. In this article, we focus on accommodation as a tool of our trade. We discuss findings and implications from a study that documented approaches used by one state's Extension professionals to accommodate clients who face language, vision, or hearing challenges. We also explore constraints, criteria for effectiveness, appropriate goals, and roles and responsibilities relative to using various accommodations to provide full access for all who participate in Extension programming.
