The Different Disabilities:
What is a mobility
impairment and dexterity limitation?
Students with mobility
impairments and dexterity limitations have varying needs and issues. These
students, to one degree or another, have ambulatory problems. Many of these
students require accommodations such as preferred seating arrangements and
someone to take notes for them.
Dexterity limitations are
generally limited to upper body movement and have problems reaching and
manipulating objects. The degree to which a limitation or impairment affects
each student varies greatly. If special furniture is required or other
adaptations are needed, contact Disability Services. Consideration for access
issues needs to be incorporated when planning field trips or activities off
