All students come to college with certain standards and needs. Some students require additional support such as accommodations, which by law, colleges are to provide through disability support. In the current study, we examined how students and professors perceive teaching accommodations both before and after COVID hit and how the pandemic caused changes in the delivery of education. We are also interested in levels of wellbeing between students and faculty, which we have defined with a number of self-reported measures. Student participants (N=92), were recruited via Instagram and SONA. Professor participants (N=85), were recruited via Email. We expect to find that students who were provided more accommodations would feel more adjusted to and comfortable with the different learning format. Such research could allow for more measures to be taken to help those with disabilities learn more effectively through technology.
